@A myRAteam Member - If you're still on regular medical insurance, there are usually assistance programs from the manufacturers to help with the costs. However, if you are on Medicare, for some reason, it disqualifies you from the help. Another thing, if you should be on Medicare, is to look at medications that are given at the doctor's office - that way it goes through Medicare and then your supplemental F. If you do self-injectibles, it goes through your Supplemental D which becomes impossible to pay - pricing is outrageous.
The makers of Humira have a program that pays your co-payment for you ask your doctor or look up the program on the internet. I took Hurmira but had a terrible reaction to it after about 6 Months. But my brother has been on it for years. So each person if different.
I was on mexotrate didnt work well for me went to humira still nothing very expensive but good news for you that medication offers a fincail aid sorry for typin erras flared up 2day.. your ra dr. should be able to give there 800 number but he has to do paper work on his end first... good luck
I'm on MTX and Humia, Enbrel before that, so don't know why you need to come of MTX unless it's down to the cost, you know, it's one or the other. I can't help you out with how much things will be. I live in United Kingdom so I don't have to pay for mine. I hope you can get sorted out. Hugs
