This might help some Humira users, it came to me in an email today:

In these economic times, you – like many others – might be wondering how you're going to pay for your prescriptions. If your doctor has decided to prescribe HUMIRA (adalimumab) for you, don't let your financial concerns prevent you from getting started. The HUMIRA Protection Plan may be able to help, regardless of whether you're insured or uninsured, employed, unemployed, or even retired.

Please click here for HUMIRA Uses and Important Safety Information, including risk of Serious Infections. HUMIRA is not right for everyone. Only your doctor can decide if HUMIRA is right for you.

Get started today!


Once your doctor has prescribed HUMIRA, obtain a HUMIRA Protection Plan card from him/her, or click HERE to order one.



Activate your card at HUMIRAHelp.com or by calling 1-877-5HUMIRA (1-877-548-6472).





*This program is not valid for co-pay assistance amounts are subject to predetermined limits.

The HUMIRA Protection Plan offers financial assistance options for just about everyone:






Employed with Rx Insurance

You can reduce your co-pay to $5 month*

Unemployed and Uninsured

You may be able to get HUMIRA at no cost to you through the Abbott Patient Assistance Foundation

Part D

You may be able to get help from an independent co-pay foundation

HUMIRA Advocates are available from 8:00 AM – 8:00 PM E.S.T. to help you.

* This program is not valid for prescriptions reimbursed under Medicare, Medicaid, or similar federal or state programs or private insurance in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts . Monthly co-pay assistance amounts are subject to predetermined limits.

Please see the Medication Guide for HUMIRA at http://rxabbott.com/pdf/humira_medguide.pdf and discuss it with your doctor.

As Mihee posted above, I had to enroll in the protection plan to afford it. Every insurance is different, but I paid $350 for my first month's dose, the protection plan covered I think another 600 beyond that which went towards my deductible. After that first payment, it costs me 5 bucks a month (2 pens), and so worth the money. My skin is finally clear after 3 months of using it, and my psoriatic arthritis felt better nearly immediately after using it (2-3 days after the first dose I noticed tremendous relief). Definitely sign up for the protection plan, they'll find a way for you to afford this. It was a headache, but so worth it in the end.

With my insurance, my copay is $30 a month, regardless of the dose ($30 copay for the Crohn's starter kit of 6 pens, $30 copay for the box with 2 pens).  My GI doctor's nurse recommended signing up for the Humira Protection Plan when we first decided to give Humira a try...I had to wait awhile to get the card, but now I only play $5 a month ($30 copay, $25 of that paid through the protection plan).
I still had to jump through hoops to get it approved through my insurance, though (they kind of had to approve it, since I've been on pretty much everything other than the other TNF-blockers).
Diagnosed with Crohn's in April 2003 (first symptoms in 2001).
Current Medications: Imuran 125mg/day, Humira, Pred 2.5mg/day, Phenergan as needed for nausea, Bentyl as needed for cramping (have previously taken Asacol, Entocort, Flagyl, Cipro, and Cortifoam)
Dietary Supplements: Flax seed oil, Folic Acid, B12, Culturelle, Glucosamine/Chondroitin, Calcium +D

On United Healthcare I had to get preauthorization every year and my copay was $40 per month (I take 1 shot a week but copay was the same if I took 2 per month or 4)...the insurance payed near 3500.00 a month. I am now on Medicare part A, B and D and I get additional assistance since my disability check is so small that now I will pay $6.00 a month and the insurance covers the 3500
Dx with Crohn's 1987, symptoms as early as 1984.
Temp iliostomy February 2007, reversed June 2007, Ovarian cysts, migraines, allergies (incl food allergies) , oral allergy syndrome (diff than true food allergies), Asthma, Gall Bladder removed 1999, Inguenal hernia 1987
