From the information available Orencia does not seem to be contraindicated in people with CHF.
Orencia is a man-made protein that prevents your body's immune system from attacking healthy tissues such as joints. The immune system helps your body fight infections. In people with autoimmune disorders, the immune system mistakes the body's own cells for invaders and attacks them.
Orencia is used to treat the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, and to prevent joint damage caused by these conditions. Orencia is also used to treat arthritis in children who are at least 6 years old.
