Tips for Saving Money on Insulin

Almost 30 million Americans have some form of diabetes, and that number is much higher for symptoms of prediabetes. For many people, the word “insulin” instills fear because of preconceived notions that taking insulin is a big inconvenience and will negatively affect your life. The truth is that insulin for diabetics controls your blood sugar level and is extremely important. The price of insulin should not dictate whether you can afford this hormone. It’s a hormone in your body that allows the pancreas to use glucose (sugar) for energy or store it for later use.

The cost of insulin has more than tripled in the last decade, making it difficult for many diabetics to afford the medication. However, if you’re accepted into an insulin prescription assistance program, this can help you save hundreds of dollars per month. This is one of the most cost-saving tips for keeping more money in your pocket when it comes to insulin and we highly recommend it!

Insulin Prescription Assistance

There are two types of insulin most commonly used by diabetics. One version is slow-acting such as Levemir and the other is fast-acting such as Lantus. The manufacturers of these insulin prescriptions offer assistance programs that provide the medication at a low cost (or free) to qualified recipients. There is a lengthy application process that many people don’t fill out correctly and are denied entry into the programs. Our Patient Advocates have years of experience in helping you successfully enter the Prescription Assistance Program.

Once in the program, you or your loved one won’t have to fear the uncertainty of receiving your monthly insulin prescription. It will be conveniently delivered to your use for immediate use. We work directly with insulin manufacturers to offer you the brand name medicine at an affordable price.
