I have seen some people talking about Humira being expensive. My doctor's office had new co-pay cards that pay up to $1000 the first month and $325 for the rest of the year. It basically is making Humira free for me. You don't have to do anything except activate the card and then my pharmacy took it. Anyone can use the cards, you didn't have to qualify for them. Pretty cool. I think you can get it by going through Humira direct as well, there is a 1-800 number, probably on their website. Anyway, huge cost savings.

Thanks for the info. Is this over and above insurance cost? My co-pay is $300.00 every 3 months.

I was wondering the same thing tinglebell asked. I pay $50 per month co-pay for my Humira, which isn't bad considering how darned expensive the Rx is. With the card that you mentioned would it cover the cost of my co-pay? Just curious? Thanks for the info!

It pays your co-pay, so if your co-pay is $300 then you the card would pay that for you for 6 months and then month 7-12 you pay $50 and the co-pay card pays the rest. The pharmacy runs it like a secondary insurance and it just goest toward the co-pay. I have a 25% copay, so my first month was $1064 and I only paid $64 and then my next co-pays were $355 and I only pay $30. COOL HUH?!!

I called the Humira help line over a month ago and asked them about the discount card. They asked me a lot of questions concerning my insurance, who my Dr. is, etc. Said they would get back back to me in a couple weeks. Have not yet heard back from them.

Jack, I would call the hotline again or ask your GI to call the rep. They should have them either way. I don't think you have to have insurance, but if you lose your insurance I know Humira has a program for patients with no insurance where they give Humira for free.
