I've seen it a handful of times. I remember it mentioning their quiz but I don't recall anything about treatments.

I think the commercial is sponsored by Centocor--the makers of Remicade.

Yes ... it's for Remicade.  If you go to the website ... you'll take a "quiz" (which, by-the-way, didn't print out the answers I put in) ... you'll enter some personal information ... then they'll mail you a "kit".  The kit is about the wonderfulness of Remicade ... all the dreaded side-effects of Remicade ... blah, blah, blah ... and a nifty cd (that I assume goes over all the printed litature. 
Oh!  Also I saw the Cimzia "litature" a friend received when she started that med.  Wow!  No wonder the pharmecutical company has to charge a ga-billion dollars an injection.  It's a fancy schmacy three ring zipped binder ... with pens and paper ... and again all the litature of the greatness of Cimzia and then all the dreaded side-effects of the med.

I got all that Cimzia stuff too... Plus they'll send you a free medication travel bag, which was nice. I haven't had a problem with prices, either; UCB'S CIMplicity program covers 100% of my copay. If Cimzia only took care of the extraintestinal symptoms I've been struggling with, I'd basically have no complaints.
