I received an email today from Abbott Labs, they have introduced a new component to their Humira Patient Assistance Program to help people who have insurance, but still have a large copay.

check it out.. I hope some of you get to save some $$$$$$

Thanks for posting this Glad Bag.  I got the email yesterday also and was going to post today if no one else had.  I wish their website had more information on it.  I signed up to get the new card, as I currently have the Co-Pay Plus card...so, we'll see how much the copay really ends up being!

I am on Humira and use the co-pay plus card, because otherwise I would be screwed! The first month (6 pens) is like over $4000.00 before insurance and assistance. After my insurance did their part, it was going to still be around $1000.00...it fell under Class D prescriptions, where you are responsible for 25% of the cost). Then, after the co-pay card, I pay around $48 for a month's supply (obviously a little more the first month, since you use more pens). But now, Abbott is offering to help even more! Not only did they send all the information and the Sharp's box, etc., but they got me signed up to their website, and I got an email to enroll in the new program. It looks like now all I have to pay is $5!!!! I am stoked! At least this company is willing to help us out a little!

Yes, the information on Humira's website regarding the new program says it may only cost you $5, but we'll see if that really happens.  And, maybe that's only if you normally pay a small co-pay like $25.  My normal co-pay would be $200 for 3 months, so I'll be amazed if I can actually get it for $5.  I'm still waiting on the card...said it would be here within 10 days and it's been 6.  I'll let you all know once I find out something.
