I received a newsletter today from Centocor that says the following:

I have to say I LOVE this program. It is the only reason I can get remicade treatments. I have already been reimbursed for my first two treatments. They send you a debit card and put the funds on that. Then I call my dr and pay part of my bill. I wish it paid all of it, but I'll take anything. I have to pay about $500 per infusion and they pay a huge chunk of that. I am so grateful they had this program.

My two cents anyway.

One additional thing you should know about Remistart is that you need to register for the program before you get your infusions.  Otherwise, they will only reimburse you for any infusions that took place within 2 weeks before your registration.  None of the registration materials or the website states this, but reimbursement for my son's first 2 infusions was rejected for this reason.
