FAQs

Which of my patients are eligible for the Janssen Link program?

Eligible patients are those who have just been prescribed TREMFYA® for an FDA-approved indication and who are commercially insured and whose insurance has delayed (>5 business days) or denied their treatment. Patients using any state or federal government-funded healthcare programs, such as Medicare, Medicaid, TRICARE, Department of Defense, and Veterans Administration, are excluded from participating.

Can I submit the TREMFYA® Prescription Enrollment Form (PEF) through my usual Specialty Pharmacy Provider (SPP)?

No. The TREMFYA® PEF needs to be submitted through Janssen CarePath for your patient to be eligible for Janssen Link.

Can my office participate in Janssen Link without an executed Business Associate Agreement (BAA)?

Yes. If you do not have an executed BAA on file, each of your patients will simply have to sign the Patient Authorization on the PEF to opt in to Janssen CarePath support services. Or you can invite each patient to create an account on MyJanssenCarePath.com and electronically sign a patient authorization there.

If you would prefer to complete a BAA, fill out the form available here.

How long will Janssen CarePath provide TREMFYA® for my commercial patients enrolled in the Janssen Link program?

If insurance coverage is delayed >5 business days or denied, Janssen CarePath will provide TREMFYA® at no cost through the program year. For example, if your patient enrolls in the program in May or June, he or she will be enrolled until the end of February if his or her commercial insurance continues to be delayed (>5 business days) or denied.

Applicants in November or December who are approved will be covered through the following year if insurance coverage continues to be delayed (>5 business days) or denied.

If, at the end of one year, insurance coverage has not been secured, patients can repeat the program process and re-enroll for another program year if they remain eligible and you and the patient choose to continue treatment.
