*If privately or publicly insured patients have difficulty paying for their Rituxan co-pay, co-insurance or other expenses, Genentech Rheumatology Access Solutions can refer them to an independent, non-profit organization (INO) supporting their disease state. Genentech does not influence or control the operations of these INOs, but Genentech Rheumatology Access Solutions can assist patients in navigating the process of seeking co-pay assistance by making an appropriate referral based on a patient's diagnosis and by assisting with the application process. We cannot guarantee co-pay assistance once a patient has been referred by Genentech Rheumatology Access Solutions. The INOs to which we refer patients each have their own criteria for patient eligibility, including financial eligibility.
†The RITUXAN EXPERIENCE Program is not a benefit plan. This program helps with the co-pay for the Rituxan drug only. It does not pay for other costs related to the visit or infusion. Genentech reserves the right to change or end this program. This may be done in whole or in part, without notice, at any time.
