Hey everyone, I've lived in NW Ohio my whole life... so it's been about 25 years, and I think it's time for a change! I went to the Chicago area for Spring break and I absolutely loved it over there. I'm ready to pack it up and look for a place in or around Chicago just as soon as I find an engineering position over there, Lord knows I'm not going to find one here. It will be my first time moving more than 30 minutes away from my family which I don't think will really bother me, but I'm not sure how things with Crohn's will work.
I'm on Humira at the moment, and I was wondering if there's any way to figure out if my future benefits will cover Humira? If my new insurance plan won't cover it, what can I do about it? Is it possible to stay on my parents plan even though I live out of state? I thought about just taking the train home every so often to get the shots, but it's about $100 for a round trip from Chicago to Sandusky. I really don't know how to make this transition go smoothly, but I will not let Crohn's keep me from doing what I think I need to do! Any advice from people who moved to new areas with a current prescription to worry about?
