The list price of insulin is high, and not taking insulin is not an option. If you’re struggling to access insulin, you’re not alone. GetInsulin.org connects you to the programs that can help.
GetInsulin.org is a resource for those struggling to access insulin today. Since 2013, the list price of insulin has skyrocketed, leaving some without health insurance or on high-deductible insurance plans paying out-of-pocket upwards of $1,000 for a one-month supply of insulin, often unaware of assistance options. This is the result of a unique drug pricing crisis going on in the United States that will require widespread healthcare reform to bring list prices down. In the immediate term, people in the US need to know what their options are to access insulin.
Beyond Type 1 advocates for high quality, modern insulin to be available to people with diabetes regardless of employment or insurance status, across all demographics, without barriers, and at an affordable and predictable price point. Until that is achieved, GetInsulin.org is a tool for those needing access to insulin options immediately.
GetInsulin.org is a program of Beyond Type 1. The program is supported by a coalition of partners helping connect those in need to lower-cost insulin now, including the American Diabetes Association (ADA), the Association of Diabetes Care and Education Specialists (ADCES), the Endocrine Society, Feeding America, JDRF, The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), and the National Hispanic Medical Association (NHMA). GetInsulin.org is funded by Lilly, Mylan, Novo Nordisk, and Sanofi.
