Help if Your Insurance Plan Does Not Approve TREMFYA™ Treatment

Sometimes you may not be able to obtain the medication that your doctor has ordered for you. For example, your insurance 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 insurance plan to explain its decision and to consider making the medication available to you as an exception to its policies.

If your commercial or private insurance does not cover your TREMFYA™ treatments, you may be eligible to receive TREMFYA™ at no cost through the Janssen Link program. Call a Janssen CarePath Care Coordinator at 877-CarePath (877-227-3728) for more information.
