What Options Are There?

Whether you have insurance or not, you might feel concerned about the cost of your treatment. If you are eligible, there is an option to help you pay for your PEGASYS.

Genentech® Access to Care Foundation (GATCF)

If you don’t have health insurance, or if you have health insurance but can’t afford your Genentech medicine, GATCF might be able to help you get your medicine for free.

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.

  • Do you have health insurance?

  • Is your yearly household income less than $100,000?

  • Is your yearly household income less than $150,000?

  • Do you spend 5% or more of the yearly household income on the out-of-pocket costs for your Genentech medicine?

You Might Qualify for Free Medicine From GATCF

To apply, you must enroll in PEGASYS Access Solutions. To do this, you must sign a form called the Patient Authorization and Notice of Release of Information, or PAN. 

Be sure to fill out Section 6 of the PAN to apply for help from GATCF.

Your doctor also has to fill out a form. Once we receive both forms, we can find out if you qualify.
