Did anyone else receive a "co-pay plus" card with their Humira Starter Pack?  I just switched from Remicade to Humira and received this card.  I called to activate the card and it will offer a discount on my prescription co-pay. 
 
My prescription plan is through Medco and I called them to give them the info off the activated card.  My co-pay went from $250/90 days to ZERO. 
 
After paying $1200 per Remicade treatment, it almost seems too good to be true.
 
The card will give you up to $1000 off your first treatment and then up to $350 off per week.  The card lasts for 1 year and then you have to renew somehow. 
 
Anyone else??

Wow, did you fill anything out previously? That's huge. I decided against using Humira for a few reasons, one being it was just way out of my price range (around $400 a month). It would be nice if we could know this before hand so we can make a better decision on our treatment options.

I totally agree.  I would have switched a long time ago if I knew I could have saved this much money.  The card just came in a big starter kit that my doctor had in the office.  I had the meds with me from the pharmacy and they had a starter kit with ice packs, travel case for the pens, and a informational CD.  However.....

Update....Medco called me back and said that they don't participate in the program so I'm out of luck.  I don't have a choice of mail order pharmacies and am forced to use mail order after 3 retail pharmacy refils.  They do however participate in a program called "Humira Share Program".  I called and inquired and I guess these cards are tough to come by.  I called the program directly and they said that you can't enroll without a card.  They are only given out by doctors.  Co-pay Plus is still a huge discount if your pharmacy accepts it.  If I could choose my pharmacy, I'd drive all over the place looking for one who accepts it. 
 
I also contacted My-Humira directly and they were unsure if the "humira share program" is still distributing cards.  It's still active, but possibly not for new enrollment. 
 
I'll update this thread if I find anymore info. 
 
I was perfectly fine paying my $250/90 days untill I knew I could get it for free.  Now I feel cheated.  I guess that's par for the course these days.  The only luck I have is bad luck.

Of course your mail order program doesn't participate, that would make life too easy, lol. It would be great if you could keep us updated.

You can call 1-800-4Humira and they will tell you all of the pharmacies that will participate. It is up to the pharmacy to participate. But, $1000/1st month and $325 each additional month is a HUGE savings.

I am in the process of switching to Humira from Remicade. I was referred to the copay plus program. The numbers that everybody quoted are true...but you have to "qualify". I haven't called yet, and I'm worried that I won't qualify. But, for those who are interested, you can call 800-364-4767.
