I just refilled my daughter's . It took 11 days and required: 6 calls to insurance, 3 calls to the pharmacy, 3 calls to the PBM, 2 calls to the endo, 1 call to the pharmacy helpline. This is what it takes to access insulin in America. This is insanity.

This is criminal, I might complain about the cost of my monthly prescriptions, but i wont die without them. People who take insulin will DIE without it, and it costs them over $1200 for a three month supply. How is this legal?

When is the crisis going to end? We need a change. What we need is someone who can supply insulin at low cost. How do we do that? Contact us at Fair Access Medicines and we’ll tell you how.

Multiple stories of Americans rationing insulin including 1 death from not getting insulin due to cost. PLEASE spread the word that sells 3 formulations of insulin OVER THE COUNTER for ~ $25 per vial!!! No prescription needed! Save lives! Retweet!

Thanks to for sharing on national news that prices for some medications are based on “what’s it worth to you” rather than actual cost production. prices make so much more sense now and yet no less despicable.

This article discusses , but the same happens with many meds: for asthma, ADHD, depression, anxiety, RA...it often takes countless trials to find a med that works, only to have it be denied over & over again! Enough!
