Without any insurance, you would end up paying around $100 to $200 for the Humira pen. With insurance, the price can decrease significantly depending on the type of coverage you have and how much your insurance company covers. When you run out, you can get your prescription for this replaced, you just have to make sure you don't overdose on the product. The price will remain the same as long as you don't have to replace the product too often, then the price can start to really add up with time. The average paid per month will differ from person to person.

I use Humira; without insurance the cost runs between $1800 and $2400 for the month (2 doses). Contact the drug company online - in the past payment assistance has been available.

The cost of each pen is $873.00 which includes the discount we get with Blue Cross / Blue Shield. We are on the hook for the first $7450.00 due to a large deductible on our policy. Add roughly $1100.0 per month in premiums we are out over $20,000.00 per year for medical alone. One third of our salary. Seeing some people complain about a $35.00 Co-Pay really does nothing for me.

$100 to $200 without insurance? What planet are you buying Humira from? Under PBS - Goverment approved as it is not covered by insurance and in Australia as yet, it costs $35.40 for a month ( 2 x pens) otherwise not under any government approval it will cost you around $2000 a month... but to get it approved so that you can get it at that cheaper rate there is a whole criteria that you have to meet

Please check out www.myhumira.com. My daughter started taking Humira a few months ago for rheumatoid arthritis. We were going to be paying $484 per month (2-40mg pens) with Blue Cross/Blue Shield. A friend told us about this site. Our cost is now $5 per month. Without giving more than basic information (name, address, pen/syringe preference) we were issued a temporary card to print out and take to the pharmacy. In about 5 days, our permanent card came in the mail. Please do yourselves a favor and check out this site. It took a few phone calls and a headache or two before I got it all settled, but it was well-worth the effort.

I just started on Humira for psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis and received the starter kit with four pens. Thank God I had insurance! My insurance paid $5,053.71 for the order. That makes the total on each pen $1,263.42. My total cost for the entire order was $5.

Totally free if you call them and tell them you can't afford it! I've been getting it over a year now. They will send you the information and what's required to get it. Pay stub, taxes, utility bill etc.
