Relocation & Incentives

Genentech, the South San Francisco-based member of the Roche Group and a biotechnology industry leader, required location and incentives consultation services. Access Solutions employees help patients understand their insurance benefits, finds ways to help those who cannot afford their Genentech medicines, and works with doctors and pharmacists to deliver medicines to patients. With the advice and guidance of the firm, Genentech selected Portland, OR for this mission critical operation, which opened for business in May 2019. The new Portland Patient Access Center employs approximately 175 full-time specialists and an almost equal number of contingent employees during the peak insurance benefit open season. Genentech was also advised on an Oregon Business Retention Program (BEP) grant and various market-entry strategies.
