Sickofitall, this is a pretty difficult question to answer. Costs can vary state to state & also depending on the coverage being bought. Your best bet is to go online & plug in your info with companies in your state. One thing to keep in mind if you elect to work from home. If you find your Cimzia is covered one year, do not expect it to continue. Just like employer insurance they often drop many drugs each year.
Sitting at a desk all day is rough. Try to keep your posture in check, get up & walk around as often as possible. You have to have really strong medical evidence to show proof of disability & your specialists have to be behind you 500%. If you are young & can be retrained for other type of work they use that as part of the denial. In most states it takes anywhere from 18 months to 2 years or longer, depending on the state to get to a hearing.
