We believe that high deductibles and copays shouldn’t prevent anyone from receiving the medications they need. That’s why at QuickRx, we offer a Copay Assistance Program. This is designed to help patients reduce their copays and out-of-pocket costs for their medication. Our program partners with various foundations and manufacturer assistance programs to help make a patient’s medication affordable.
Here are the ways to apply for the program:
Imatinib Mesylate is a signal transduction inhibitor targeted therapy that’s particularly a protein-tyrosine kinase inhibitor. It’s used to attack the cancer cells without damaging normal cells in order to minimize side effects.

Imatinib Mesylate is a pill taken orally either once or twice daily. Consult with your doctor about dose and schedule.
It’s critical to take this medication at around the same time everyday. If you miss a dose, don’t take the missed dose or double the next one. Check with your healthcare provider and resume your regular dosing schedule.
