    I have a client who makes over $100K plus a pension 2 family household. For part D they told her she would pay 2K first month and after that about $500 a month most of it is because of the humira any suggestions on how to get it cheaper. I was going to put her on a plan G She is only 60 because on disability

    Do you have a carrier that will pay a commission on U65 Medigap?

    I'd have them approach the doctor about switching to infusions as those are covered by part B and the. 109% covered by med sup.

    Cimzia and remicaid seem to be the top ones.

    Cimzia is self injected.

    Remicade more commonly used for Crohn's but may be used for RA. Remicade is administered by IV.

    Cimzia is also injected via a provider. There are a number of other that the client should bring up with the provider as a possible solution
