Anyone taking Humira injection (medication) in Singapore?

Post by Hidy Ho » Sun, 16 Oct 2011 1:43 am

Anyone prescribed and taking Humira in Singapore? If so, I'd love to hear from you!

I'm interested in "cost" as wel as how the prescription works for this medicine under Singapore "medical insurance" scenario. And any doctor information.

I'm currently prescribed in USA and lucky to have it covered with my current medical insurance. If not covered, this stuff is very very expensive.

I've reached out to Abbott Laboratories but all got is "yes, it's available in Singapore".

Thanks in advance.

MODs: wasn't sure which section of the forum to post this question. Please move to other section, if more appropriate.

You should ask your insurance provider if it's covered.
I believe that most insurances exclude pre-existing conditions.
For the price, ask at a pharmacy.

Sorry no idea on your original question but have you checked with your doctor whether it is safe for you to continue this therapy while moving to a country with rather different ecosystem? Different strains of bacterias, tuberculosis in the region etc?
