So many know that I have no insurance so I have been off of meds for 5 months now ( recent week in hospital). I was approved for the Cimzia plan and I will be getting it free for 1 year. I am in shock! And soooo thankful! I am not looking forward to the shots in the tummy.. but all my meds tend to come with needles so I am pretty used to it. Now lets hope it works!

Soooooooo glad you got it! I do the Cimzia in my thighs and it doesn't hurt one bit. Best of luck to you, hope Cimzia gets you on the road to feeling better.
