Support you need to live with chronic granulomatous disease (CGD)
People with CGD who are prescribed ACTIMMUNE® (Interferon gamma-1b)—as well as their caregivers—have access to Horizon Patient Services, a no-cost program that provides a comprehensive network of services.
The Horizon Patient Services support team includes a dedicated CGD nurse educator and case manager. The nurse educator acts as the main point of contact for all medical questions and concerns about CGD and treatment with ACTIMMUNE®. The case manager works with insurance companies to determine coverage and specialty pharmacies to coordinate delivery of ACTIMMUNE®. Additional support team members help people with CGD and their caregivers connect with others through social media communities, peer mentor programs, and live events.
Horizon Patient Services is committed to improving the lives of people touched by CGD.
