The Gaucher Registry (sponsored by Sanofi Genzyme) is the world’s largest cooperative observational study on Gaucher disease. The International Collaborative Gaucher Group (ICGG) established the registry in 1991 as a longitudinal database tracking outcomes of routine clinical practice. All patients with a confirmed diagnosis of Gaucher disease are eligible for inclusion. By enrolling patients in the registry, participating physicians will receive patient-specific reports to monitor disease status.
Visit the Gaucher Registry to learn more.
This program was established in the US to provide Sanofi Genzyme’s therapies to eligible individuals who do not have health insurance or have inadequate coverage for treatment. It is considered a temporary solution until long-term coverage can be secured.
Qualified individuals with Gaucher disease type 1 whose physicians have recommended treatment with Cerdelga may be eligible for the Charitable Access Program. If a patient is ineligible for our program, their CareConnectPSS Case Manager will work with the patient and their health care providers to explore alternative coverage options.
A CareConnectPSS Case Manager will coordinate with you and your patient to obtain the necessary documentation, including a signed waiver, and keep you updated on the status of your patient’s application. Applications are reviewed on a monthly basis and are kept confidential by the Sanofi Genzyme Charitable Access Program.
To learn more about the Sanofi Genzyme Charitable Access Program or to request an application form, call 1‑800‑745‑4447,
The Sanofi Genzyme Charitable Access Program may be discontinued at any time at the discretion of the Charitable Access Program Committee.
Treatment with Cerdelga is a covered benefit under most major insurance plans, as well as the Medicare and Medicaid programs. Before a patient begins treatment with Cerdelga, it may be necessary for the treating physician to obtain written confirmation of coverage for treatment from the patient’s insurance plan.
