What is Stelara prescribed for?

Stelara is prescribed to patients with moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis. Stelara may also be prescribed to patients suffering from psoriatic arthritis. In some cases, where other medication cannot be used, Stelara is often prescribed to adults with moderate-to-severe Crohn’s disease. 

Active Ingredient 

The active ingredient in Stelara is ustekinumab, a human monoclonal antibody. Ustekinumab decreases the effects of immune cell activation and thereby helps reduce body inflammation.


Conditions treated by Stelara

Plaque Psoriasis

Plaque psoriasis is an inherited inflammatory disease that causes raised dry red patches to appear across the body, most commonly on the back, knees, and elbows. In cases of moderate-to-severe psoriasis, these patches are often described as itchy and painful. They may crack and bleed, making performing daily tasks difficult.

Psoriatic Arthritis

Psoriatic arthritis occurs in patients already suffering from psoriasis. This condition results in painful and swollen joints. Psoriatic arthritis can affect any joint and may lead to progressive joint damage and deformity. 

Crohn’s Disease

Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory disease that affects the digestive tract. In most cases, the disease affects the lower part of the intestine. Often, symptoms such as abdominal pain and diarrhea can vary from mild-to-severe and are recurrent.  

There is no cure for Crohn’s disease, but certain types of treatment (such as medication or nutritional supplements), can ease symptoms. 

*Qualifying persons may obtain medications directly from patient assistance programs without any out-of-pocket cost (or for less than $49 per medication). However, our monthly flat rate of just $49 per medication spares you the hassle of tracking down the different programs and filling out all the required paperwork for each program.

Enrollees enjoy a full-service solution, as Prescription Care assists them and their physicians with the entire process. We prepare all required documents for the physician to sign, help enrollees manage all prescription refills, monitor eligibility criteria, and maintain enrollment.

**If you do not receive medications because you were determined to be ineligible for the prescription assistance by the applicable pharmaceutical companies and you have a letter of denial, we will refund any fees you paid toward medications for which you did not qualify to receive prescription assistance (Refund).

To receive a Refund, you must send the letter of denial to us by fax to 866-262-2603, or by e-mail to [email protected] within 30 days of your receipt of such letter. The Refund is your sole and exclusive remedy for any fees you may wish to dispute.
