TECENTRIQ Coverage

Benefits Investigations

Genentech BioOncology® Access Solutions for TECENTRIQ can conduct a benefits investigation (BI) to help you determine if a Genentech medicine is covered, if prior authorizations (PAs) are required, which specialty pharmacy (SP) the health insurance plan prefers and if patient assistance might be needed.

Potential outcomes of a BI:

  • Treatment is covered
  • PA is required
  • Treatment is denied

A BI may be initiated once the Prescriber Service Form and PAN are submitted to Genentech BioOncology Access Solutions.

These can be downloaded from Forms and Documents or submitted online via My Patient Solutions

The completion and submission of coverage- or reimbursement-related documentation are the responsibility of the patient and health care provider. Genentech makes no representation or guarantee concerning coverage or reimbursement for any service or item.

Prior Authorization

Genentech BioOncology® Access Solutions for TECENTRIQ can help you identify if a prior authorization (PA) is necessary and offer resources as you obtain it for your patient. PA support may be provided once the Prescriber Service Form and PAN are submitted to Genentech BioOncology Access Solutions.

If your patient’s request for a PA is not granted, your BioOncology Field Reimbursement Manager (BFRM) or Genentech BioOncology Access Solutions Specialist can work with you to determine your next steps. You can find more tips like this in Forms and Documents.

Important Safety Information & Indication

Indication

mUC

TECENTRIQ is indicated for the treatment of patients with locally advanced or metastatic urothelial carcinoma who:

  • Are not eligible for cisplatin-containing chemotherapy and whose tumors express PD-L1 (PD-L1–stained tumor-infiltrating immune cells [IC] covering ≥5% of the tumor area), as determined by an FDA-approved test, or
  • Are not eligible for any platinum-containing chemotherapy regardless of PD-L1 status, or
  • Have disease progression during or following any platinum-containing chemotherapy, or within 12 months of neoadjuvant or adjuvant chemotherapy

This indication is approved under accelerated approval based on tumor response rate and durability of response. Continued approval for this indication may be contingent upon verification and description of clinical benefit in confirmatory trials.

NSCLC

TECENTRIQ in combination with bevacizumab, paclitaxel, and carboplatin, is indicated for the first-line treatment of patients with metastatic non-squamous, non-small cell lung cancer (nsqNSCLC) with no EGFR or ALK genomic tumor aberrations.

TECENTRIQ is indicated for the treatment of patients with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who have disease progression during or following platinum-containing chemotherapy. Patients with EGFR or ALK genomic tumor aberrations should have disease progression on FDA-approved therapy for NSCLC harboring these aberrations prior to receiving TECENTRIQ.
