Prior Authorization Assistance
Our Prior Authorization (PA) Assistance includes†:
- Researching patient’s health plan for PA requirements
- Providing payer-specific PA form for online completion by the provider in the portal
- Monitoring status of the PA submission
- Notifying your office 30 days before PA expiration
† We do not fill out any information that requires the medical judgment of the prescriber, and only the prescriber can determine whether to pursue a PA.
A standardized, or "uniform," PA form may be required in certain states to submit PA requests to a health plan for review, along with the necessary clinical documentation. These standard forms can be used across payers and health benefit managers.
- Standardized PA Forms are only applicable to prescription drug benefits; they are not applicable to medical services or procedures.
- Standardized PA Forms are typically not applicable to self-funded employer-sponsored health plans, Medicare Part D plans, and Medicaid fee-for-service plans.
Please visit the Know Your State Interactive Tool to learn what is required for your state.
Information about your patient's insurance coverage, cost support options, and treatment support is given by service providers for Janssen CarePath. The information you get does not require you or your patient to use any Janssen product. Because the information we give you comes from outside sources, Janssen CarePath cannot promise the information will be complete. Janssen CarePath cost support is not for patients in the Johnson & Johnson Patient Assistance Foundation.
This information is not a promise of coverage or payment. It is not intended to give reimbursement advice or increase reimbursement by any payer. Legal requirements and plan information can be updated frequently. Contact the plan for more information about current coverage, reimbursement policies, restrictions, or requirements that may apply.

TREMFYA® (guselkumab) is indicated for the treatment of adults with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis who are candidates for systemic therapy or phototherapy.
TREMFYA® is indicated for the treatment of adults with active psoriatic arthritis.
WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS
Serious hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis, have been reported with postmarket use of TREMFYA®. Some cases required hospitalization. If a serious hypersensitivity reaction occurs, discontinue TREMFYA® and initiate appropriate therapy.
TREMFYA® may increase the risk of infection. Treatment with TREMFYA® should not be initiated in patients with a clinically important active infection until the infection resolves or is adequately treated.
Consider the risks and benefits of treatment prior to prescribing TREMFYA® in patients with a chronic infection or a history of recurrent infection. Instruct patients receiving TREMFYA® to seek medical help if signs or symptoms of clinically important chronic or acute infection occur. If a patient develops a clinically important or serious infection, or is not responding to standard therapy, closely monitor and discontinue TREMFYA® until the infection resolves.
Pre-Treatment Evaluation for Tuberculosis (TB)
Evaluate patients for TB infection prior to initiating treatment with TREMFYA®. Initiate treatment of latent TB prior to administering TREMFYA®. Monitor patients for signs and symptoms of active TB during and after TREMFYA® treatment. Do not administer TREMFYA® to patients with active TB infection.
Prior to initiating TREMFYA®, consider completion of all age-appropriate immunizations according to current immunization guidelines. Avoid use of live vaccines in patients treated with TREMFYA®.
Most common (≥1%) adverse reactions associated with TREMFYA® include upper respiratory infections, headache, injection site reactions, arthralgia, bronchitis, diarrhea, gastroenteritis, tinea infections, and herpes simplex infections.
The overall safety profile observed in patients with psoriatic arthritis is generally consistent with the safety profile in patients with plaque psoriasis, with the addition of bronchitis and neutrophil count decreased.
