Does Medicare Cover Humira?

Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) does not cover prescription drugs, including the self-injected biologic medication HUMIRA. If you require Humira for the treatment of an arthritic or psoriatic condition, you may be able to get coverage through Medicare Part D (prescription drug plan).

HUMIRA Medicare Coverage

HUMIRA helps relieve joint pain, treat inflammatory arthritis and clear up chronic skin conditions such as psoriasis. It is administered by an injection under the skin, about once every two weeks.

Original Medicare does not cover HUMIRA. However, Medicare beneficiaries have the option to enroll in a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan (Medicare Part D) for drug coverage. Many Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plans may provide coverage for HUMIRA.

How Is HUMIRA Covered by Medicare Part D?

Because Medicare Part D plans are sold by private insurance companies, your drug coverage and costs can vary.

You should contact your State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) for more information on Medicare drug coverage options in your area. When you do, be sure to get details on:

  • Whether your Part D plan covers HUMIRA
  • How much it will likely cost with your Part D coverage
  • What network of pharmacies and suppliers your plan uses

Eating Healthy to Fight Arthritis

Certain foods can help support joint health and fight inflammation caused by arthritis. These foods include leafy green vegetables, olive oil, nuts, fish and more. It can be helpful to follow a diet that helps to fight inflammation, as the nutrients you get from these foods can often reduce some of your joint swelling and pain.

To learn which foods you can eat to help support your joints, read through our guide to the 7 Foods That are Good for Arthritis. And if you sit all day while you work, check out these 6 Ways to Stay Healthy at a Sedentary Job.
