Referrals to the Genentech BioOncology Co-pay Card
Co-pay card programs provide direct financial assistance to patients to help with their co-pays, co-insurance or other out-of-pocket costs. If eligible commercially insured patients need assistance with their out-of-pocket costs, Genentech BioOncology® Access Solutions for ALECENSA can refer them to the Genentech BioOncology Co-pay Card.
To get started, call (855) MYCOPAY (855-692-6729) or visit CopayAssistanceNow.com.

commercially insured patients. Patients using Medicare,
