Re: Humira

Humira is covered by the basic insurance under certain conditions for Rheumatoide Arthritis - polyartikuläre juvenile Arthritis - Psoriasis-Arthritis - Morbus Bechterew ( Ankylosierende Spondylitis) - Crohns Disease - Ulcerative Colitis

Ankylosierende Spondylitis is only covered if previous conventional treatments were not successful.

The treating specialist has to submit a request to the insurance company for the OK.

Info here (in German)....I guess there's a French version somewhere

Our experience with the "request" process is very positive. Mr HH is currently on his third expensive chemotherapy and all requests have been quickly approved.

I suggest you get a letter from your current doctor outlining the history of treatment and the reasons you are on Humira rather than whatever "conventional" treatments are. Then your doctor in Geneva can use that to submit with the request.
