With the average price of insulin skyrocketing in  recent years – nearly tripling between 2002 and 2013 – more and more of  our family members, our friends, our neighbors and ourselves are faced  with tough choices to pay for this lifesaving drug.

 Insulin is not a luxury drug. It’s not optional. It’s something we need,  and the prices just keep going up. There’s a lot of support in the  diabetes community, but at the end of the day you’re still the one  living with it and it’s your life that’s at stake. That’s scary.”  Go to www.insulinforall.com for more info.

Follow the money

This video from the Wall Street Journal shows the flow of money from the pharmaceutical companies to wholesalers (Pharmacy Benefit Manager) to pharmacies to patients.  The WSJ does an excellent job of describing this process in the video. A change must be made to change the process and lower the cost of insulin.  Sign our petition at:Insulinforall.org.
