*In order to be eligible for the Esbriet Co-pay Card Program, you must confirm that you meet the eligibility criteria and agree to the rules set forth in the terms and conditions for the program. Please visit Genentech-Access.com/Esbriet for the full list of terms and conditions.

Independent co-pay assistance foundations have their own rules for eligibility. We cannot guarantee a foundation will help you. We only can refer you to a foundation that supports your disease state. We do not endorse or show financial preference for any particular foundation. The foundations we refer you to are not the only ones that might be able to help you.

To be eligible for free medicine from GATCF, insured patients must have exhausted all other forms of patient assistance (including the Esbriet Co-pay Card Program and support from co-pay assistance foundations supporting the patient’s disease state) and meet additional financial and medical criteria.
