Committed to Access

We are committed to helping people get access to Genentech medicines whenever possible. Genentech Access Solutions offers coverage support, patient assistance, other useful information to help you along the way.

We offer a full range of programs and services to meet the needs of patients and are here to help when one of our medicines is prescribed.

How Access Solutions Can Help You

Genentech Access Solutions can help you manage payments for your prescribed Genentech medicines. We can work with you if:

  • You have no health care plan
  • Your health care plan turned down paying for your medicine
  • You have a high co-pay or co-insurance
Patient assistance support is for eligible patients in the U.S. who don’t have insurance coverage or who can’t afford out-of-pocket co-pay costs.

A History of Providing Access

Our first product was approved in 1985. Since, we have donated approximately $3.50 billion in free medicine to uninsured patients through the Genentech Access to Care Foundation (GATCF) and other programs. In 2012, we were able to help more than 100,000 fully insured, underinsured and uninsured patients with access issues. And, since 2005, we've supported co-pay assistance foundations with more than $932† million in donations since 2005.

* Patients must meet certain criteria.
† Amount is approximate pending final financial audit confirmation; data published in March 2013.
‡ GATCF donation value is based on the most current forecast
