I received a mass email this morning from the American Diabetes Association (ADA). In short, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the ‘Build Back Better Act’ that has a national $35 insulin co-pay cap, and allows Medicare to negotiate the price of insulin. This was, in part, aided by the thousands of letters and emails, from us, urging our representatives to support this.
Yet, the bill isn’t a done deal yet, so the ADA is requesting continued support. It’s easy with this form to press this through, it’s mostly written for us.
Let’s keep on them and get insulin down to an affordable price. For the first time I feel it’s within reach.
