Diabetes Medication Prescription Assistance

There are over 30 million diabetics in the United States that depend on insulin to regulate blood sugar levels. The unfortunate truth is that diabetes medication is expensive for the segment of the population that is underinsured or uninsured. Many older Americans suffering from diabetes are stuck in the Medicare “donut hole” every year. If you or a loved one fall into one of these categories, our patient advocates can help you. We have access to diabetes medication prescription assistance that can drastically lower your monthly insulin prescription costs.

Insulin Prescription Assistance Programs

For people with diabetes, insulin is needed for different reasons depending which type of diabetes you’re affected by.

  • Type 1 Diabetes – your pancreas does not secrete enough (or any) insulin. This is because the beta cells in the pancreas are damaged or destroyed.
  • Type 2 Diabetes – your body does not provide enough insulin or has become resistant to insulin’s action. In response, the level of glucose in your blood increases because it’s not able to enter the proper cells.

There are many types of insulin (which is a hormone) out there for diabetics – the most common are short-acting and long-acting. To put the price of insulin for diabetics into perspective, it can cost hundreds of dollars per month (upwards of $400) to be able to receive the adequate supply of insulin that’s needed for many diabetics. Because of this high cost, many people that genuinely need diabetes medication simply can’t afford it, leading to more health consequences.

We are experts in diabetes medication prescription assistance because we work directly with insulin manufacturers to offer you insulin at an affordable price.
