My insurance has a co-pay of $50 if I use their mail order pharmacy. the first 6 shots 9my loading dose) were $50 and now I do 2 shots every other week, get a 90 day supply (12 injections) for another $50. If I want I can use my local pharmacy and the co-pay would be 40%...at $750 per shot that would mean my first year on this drug would cost over $16,000. I think I will stay with mail order ($250 a year).
BTW...if you live here in the USA and your doctor is not aware that Humira has been approved for CD...you may want to really think about the level of care you are getting.
