Sanofi Genzyme Charitable Access Program

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.

The Sanofi Genzyme Charitable Access Program has been established in the United States through the Sanofi Genzyme Charitable Foundation, Inc. The program is committed to providing Cerdelga to individuals who:
  • Medically need Cerdelga and
  • Are uninsured or have inadequate insurance coverage for Cerdelga

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.

To be considered for the program, patients will be asked to provide the following:
  • A Letter of Intent to Treat with Cerdelga from their physician. The letter must be on MD letterhead and the physician must request charitable Cerdelga in the letter and reason why he/she is requesting charitable medication
  • A Statement of Medical Necessity from their physician
  • A completed program application

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.

Please note that the Sanofi Genzyme Charitable Access Program is considered a temporary program. Patients and their families are expected to continue exploring alternative resources with the assistance of a CareConnectPSS Case Manager. These may include:
  • Private insurance
  • Government programs

To learn more about the Sanofi Genzyme Charitable Access Program or to request an application form, call 1-800-745-4447, Option 3.

The Sanofi Genzyme Charitable Access Program may be discontinued at any time at the discretion of the Charitable Access Program Committee.

Billing and reimbursement

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.

These downloadable templates can be customized to meet a patient’s specific requirements.

Please contact a CareConnectPSS Case Manager for assistance with the reimbursement process at 1‑800‑745‑4447, Option 3.
