If your health plan does not approve STELARA® treatment
Sometimes you may not be able to obtain the medication that your doctor has ordered for you. For example, your health plan might not cover the medication because it is not on the plan’s drug list (formulary) or the cost is higher than you think you should have to pay. In these situations, you and your doctor have the right to ask the health plan to explain its decision and to consider making the medication available to you as an exception to its policies.
Janssen Link enables eligible patients to receive STELARA® at no cost until you receive coverage or until the end of the current program year if the following program requirements are met.
- You have been prescribed subcutaneous STELARA® for an on-label, FDA-approved indication
- You have commercial insurance that has delayed (>5 business days) or denied your treatment
- You do not use any state or federal government-funded healthcare program to cover a portion of medication costs, such as Medicare, Medicaid, TRICARE, Department of Defense, or Veterans Administration
- You cannot submit the value of the free product as a claim for payment to any third-party payer
- You are not eligible if the prior authorization is denied due to missing information on coverage determination form, use for a non-FDA-approved indication, or invalid clinical rationale
- You must contact Janssen CarePath if you switch from commercial health insurance coverage to a government-funded healthcare program at any point during the program year
- Your prescriber must enroll you in Jassen Link, which may require you to sign a Patient Authorization Form. The Patient Authorization can be found on the enrollment form your prescriber completes, or you can create an account on MyJanssenCarePath.com and electronically sign a Patient Authorization there.
- Your prescriber agrees to not purchase the Janssen medication on your behalf, and not bill commercial payers for any part of the prescribed subcutaneous treatment
- Your prescriber completes and submits a form of coverage determination (ie, prior authorization or prior authorization with exception) to the commercial insurance
- If coverage is denied, your prescriber challenges the coverage denial with an exception, Letter of Medical Necessity, or appeal within 90 days
- Program covers the cost of therapy only—not associated administration cost
- No portion of the value of the free product will count towards the patient’s applicable out-of-pocket cost-sharing obligations
- Program year runs March 1 - February 28
- Janssen CarePath reserves the right to cancel or modify Janssen Link at any time
