Genentech provides support to help facilitate access to Genentech Oncology medicines for eligible patients. A list of Genentech Oncology medicines, indications, and program information is provided in the Table.

Genentech Oncology Access Solutions

The assistance provided by Genentech Oncology Access Solutions varies based on the patient’s prescribed medication and insurance status.

Genentech Oncology Co-pay Assistance Program

The copay program provides direct financial assistance to commercially insured patients to help with their copays, coinsurance, or other out-of-pocket costs. To be eligible for this program, patients must:

  • Be covered by commercial or private insurance
  • Be aged ≥18 years
  • Be receiving a Genentech Oncology product for an FDA-approved indication
  • Reside and receive treatment in the United States or US territories
  • Not be insured by state- or government-funded health plans, such as Medicare, Medicaid, Medigap, or TRICARE
  • Not be receiving assistance through the Genentech Patient Foundation or any other copay charitable organization.

Patients may pay as little as $5 for their prescribed Genentech Oncology product, with an annual benefit limit of $25,000 per product. Visit CopayAssistanceNow.com or call 855-692-6729 to learn more.

Genentech Patient Foundation

Eligible patients who meet specified criteria may qualify to receive their Genentech medication at no cost through the Genentech Patient Foundation. Patients may qualify if they:

  • Are uninsured or insured but without coverage for a Genentech medicine
  • Have a household adjusted gross income of $150,000 or less
  • Have insurance that covers Genentech medicines but have unaffordable out-of-pocket costs and have pursued other forms of financial assistance.
