The Genentech® Access to Care Foundation

The Genentech Access to Care Foundation, or GATCF, helps people who have health insurance and those who don’t. If you qualify for GATCF, you could receive PEGASYS free of charge.

You might qualify if you meet the requirements below.

To apply for this program, you must be enrolled in PEGASYS Access Solutions.

To enroll in PEGASYS Access Solutions, you must complete a form called the Patient Authorization and Notice of Release of Information, or PAN. This form is located under Forms and Documents.

We also need a form from your doctor. This is called a Statement of Medical Necessity, or SMN.

If you think you might qualify for GATCF, be sure to complete Sections 5 and 6 when you fill out the PAN.

†Including Genentech brand-specific co-pay cards and support from independent co-pay assistance foundations.
