BC pharmacare switching to biosimilars

Hi everyone,

im hoping to reach out to some BC humira takers. Recently got a letter in the mail about pharmacare now requiring us to change to a covered medication. Anyone speak with their gastros yet about whether this is smart?

kind of worried...
I am in the U.S. but I've discussed biosimilars with my GI at a prominent research institution here in the U.S. and he was not concerned about switching and said he agreed with the premise of biosimilars combating pharmaceutical monopolies that hurt patients.
