How is it that you will be able to stay on your father's health insurance for another 5 years? It is my understanding that most children covered under a parent's policy have until age 23 if in school fulltime. otherwise they are off once they graduate high school or turn 18. You need not answer those questions - I am merely just curious.
Humira is prescribed to a patient for as long as they continue to benefit from the medication. Since Humira was onl;y approved for CD in about
2006, there is not a lot of information on patients being on it for really long periods of time. RA patients have been taking Humira for longer than CDers so I would imagine some have hit the 5 year mark.
