While Celgene does not have a copay assistance program, they do provide patient support specialists that can help insured patients find alternative funding sources for their medication. Please call 1-800-931-8691 or send an email to receive assistance.
If a patient receives an insurance denial, Celgene will help with the appeal. Download, fill out, and submit the appointment of representative form for this specific type of assistance.
