Millions of people in the U.S. require insulin to treat their diabetes. However, insulin costs continue to rise and many people are unable to afford their medication. While lawmakers continue to try and set price limits on how much can be charged for insulin, the high cost forces some people to go without or use less than the prescribed dose.
There are many national and local resources available to help people get insulin at an affordable rate, from drug company assistance programs to prescription discount cards to state-specific programs for the uninsured.
We have put together a directory of these resources to help people with diabetes obtain the insulin they need at a lower price. Review resources.
