Referrals to the Genentech Patient Foundation

The Genentech® Access to Care Foundation is now the Genentech Patient Foundation.

We are still focused on giving free medicines to patients in need, but we've made some changes to provide better support to more patients, more quickly.

The Genentech Patient Foundation provides free medicines to people:

  • Who don't have insurance
  • Whose treatment is not covered by insurance
  • Who are struggling with high out-of-pocket costs

To learn more and to apply for help, visit GenentechPatientFoundation.com.

To be eligible for free Genentech medicine from the Genentech Patient Foundation, insured patients who have coverage for their medicine must have exhausted all other forms of patient assistance (including the Genentech BioOncology Co-pay Card and support from independent co-pay assistance foundations) and must meet financial criteria. Uninsured patients and insured patients without coverage for their medicine must meet different financial criteria.
