Remicade rebate program (Janssen CarePath, used to be Remistart)

As the new year approaches, I just wanted to make sure that any new readers here know about the Remicade rebate program. If you are in the US and have private insurance that covers a portion of your Remicade costs, then the makers of Remicade will pay for your out-of-pocket costs for the drug, up to $20,000/year. This is regardless of your income. You can sign up for the program online on the Janssen CarePath Program website.

We didn't use the program for the first 2 years that my daughter was on Remicade because I didn't realize we were eligible. But we've been using it for the past 2 years, and it's saved us $1000 each year.

Other drugs have similar rebate programs, so definitely do a search for them if your child is on any medicines for which you have out-of-pocket costs.

Cimzia also has one and so does Simponi. I know both are used less in kids but are used sometimes. Cimzia is approved for adult Crohn's and Simponi is approved for adult UC.
