The price for Cimzia is obscene!!! When my health insurance ends, I'm screwed big time. We must continue the fight for Universal, single-payer health care. I am an RA patient and I work in Clinical Trials for RA patients. My patients are suffering and can't afford this medicine.

Comment:
I am fairly new to the medication, had 2 mo of Cimzia thus far. It burns at 1st but seems to be working for RA. I hope they come out with an easier way to inject. I am able to do steps better, and walk longer since starting this med. Hope it keeps getting better so I can get off some of the other pain relief meds I am on.
