New Colorado Law Caps Diabetes Insulin at $100 per Month

October 9, 2019


DOGS HAVE AROUND THE SAME BODY TEMPERATURE AS HUMANS. IF YOU ARE UNCOMFORTABLE THEN YOUR PET IS TOO. ONE STATE IS PUTTING A LIMIT ON HOW MUCH PEOPLE CAN DIABETES HAVE TO PAY FOR INSULIN. IN COLORADO THEY WILL NOT HAVE TO PAY ANY MORE THAN $100 EVERY MONTH STARTING IN JANUARY. JASON STOOGENKE HAS BEEN CALLING ATTENTION TO THE PRICE OF THIS MEDICINE FOR TWO YEARS. HE’S NOW LIVE IN THE STUDIO. Reporter: NO DOUBT ABOUT IT THIS IS A MAJOR MOVE. AFTER ALL, IT ONLY COSTS BETWEEN $2 AND 6 TO MAKE A VILE OF MOST INSULIN. BUT SOME PATIENTS, AS YOU KNOW, PAY HUNDREDS OR EVEN THOUSANDS EACH MONTH. NOW THIS COLORADO LAW SAYS PATIENTS WILL ONLY HAVE TO PAY UP TO $100 PER MONTH. AND INSURANCE COMPANIES WILL HAVE TO PICK UP THE REST OF THE TAB. NOW OF COURSE SOME EXPECT INSURERS TO PASS THAT ALONG TO OTHER CONSUMERS. NOW I HAVEN’T HEARD ANYONE FLOAT THE SAME IDEA HERE IN THE CAROLINAS. SO UNTIL THEN I’M ALWAYS LOOKING FOR WAYS PATIENTS HERE CAN SAVE MONEY. HERE’S WHAT I FOUND IN RECENT MONTHS. WALMART HAS ITS OWN STORE BRAND FOR LESS THAN $25. THE DRUG COMPANY SANTAFI CUT THE DRUG FOR PATIENTS WHO PAY OUT OF POCKET. ANOTHER COMPANY IS LAUNCHING A GENERIC. CIGNA PLANS TO SELL A 30 DAY
