REMS programs

To avoid embryo-fetal exposure, Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) programs are mandatory for the Celgene products THALOMID® (thalidomide), REVLIMID® (lenalidomide), and POMALYST® (pomalidomide). The THALOMID REMS® program, REVLIMID REMS® program, and POMALYST REMS® program require prescribers and pharmacists to be certified and patients to enroll and comply with all of the requirements for each program.

To enroll yourself and your patients, to receive more information, or to download forms related to the REMS programs, please visit www.CelgeneRiskManagement.com or call 1-888-423-5436.

Insurance forms

Letter of medical necessity
A letter of medical necessity is a letter written by the patient’s treating physician to the patient’s insurance company requesting prior approval for medication or reconsideration of a denial. The letter should generally contain information on the patient’s medical history and current treatment plan. You can download guidelines for writing a letter of medical necessity here.
