An employer added a Landmark plan to their benefits program giving employees a low-cost alternative for treating low back and joint pain by substituting chiropractic and acupuncture care for expensive drugs and biologics.
As a result, several employees discontinued taking Humira (adalimumab), an expensive medication used to treat a range of musculoskeletal conditions such as arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis. There are no generic alternatives to Humira, so most health plans are responsible for covering it.
The lowest GoodRx price for Humira is approximately $5,900.
Chiropractic and acupuncture can also steer employees in pain away from surgery. When the alternative is to see an orthopedist or a neurosurgeon, the treatment regimen begins with expensive diagnostics and often ends with surgery.
Avoiding even one spinal fusion, an $80,000 procedure, can fund a lot of conservative care.
