I have Psoriatic arthritis and I have taken Enbrel and Humira and they gave mefinancial help with thier injections. I had to go to Remicade infusions, which are $3,600 per time & i had the 1st three close together. My insurance only pays 60% which leaves me with a huge bill.....all my take-home pay for one month. Johnson & Johnson says they reserve their help for people with No insurance. I'd like to see them get up stiff as a board every morning; hurting from head to toe; but dragging yourself to work anyway....then you have to give all your money to them!
This country is not for the middle class people who want to work. Thanks for nothing Johnson & Johnson....I'm going back to Humira that care about their patients!

I'm very sorry that you were refused assistance by Johnson and Johnson, that is quite expensive.

However, they are not the only company that requires someone to have no insurance to receive assistance, it is actually rare that any provide assistance to people with insurance. Most of the programs are solely for those that are uninsured.

Learn more Humira details here.

It's great that you have an alternative medication you can take.

How are you feeling? Does heat, such as hot packs, help you at all?
