If your health plan no longer covers REMICADE® treatment and you are being asked to switch to a biosimilar

Sometimes due to a change in your health plan's drug list (formulary), you may no longer be able to obtain REMICADE®, and you might be asked to switch to an infliximab biosimilar. In these situations, you and your doctor have the right to ask the health plan to explain its decision and to consider making REMICADE® available to you as an exception to its policy.

If you have questions, please call Janssen CarePath at 877-CarePath (877-227-3728), Monday - Friday, 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM ET.
