My daughter is using HUMIRA for chrons disease ans psoriasis. she recently underwent surgery for chrons and is doing better. the cost of HUMIRA is very expensive as anyone who is using it knows. Even after her insurance pays her co-pay still amounts to more than 1 weeks pay. if she were to decide to discontinue it could there be complicaitons?
I don't know the answer to your question. You should address this with her doctor. I use Humira for arthritus and got on their co-pay assistance program. This will make her co-pay $5. Ask her doctor for a form to send to Humira. Or, I think you can get on the program by going on line to Humira. Good luck! BC
When the doctor put you on humira he should've given you a patient advocate number for it. They help get you as low a rate as possible. Because of my income I now get it for $9.00. Where with my insurance it was $2700. for a shot every week. I have my own patient advocate and she is wonderful. She even calls just to check up and answer any new questions.
