What is GetInsulin.org, and how does it work?

GetInsulin.org connects people with diabetes in the United States to the insulin access and affordability options that match their unique circumstances. On GetInsulin.org, users answer a few questions (such as location, insurance type, income, and prescription) then receive a customized action plan to guide them to solutions that best serve their unique circumstances.

GetInsulin.org is designed to help individuals navigate the patchwork of affordability and access solutions that exist in the United States. It is not a direct assistance program, and GetInsulin.org, Beyond Type 1, and other organizational partners do not manage the programs that are included in the Action Plans generated by GetInsulin.org.

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, Novo Nordisk, Sanofi and Viatris (formerly Mylan).

Who does GetInsulin.org serve?

The solutions available through GetInsulin.org are available to people in the United States, including those who are not US citizens. The site and plan details are available in English and Spanish.

Does GetInsulin.org collect my data?
