Will insulin costs drop in the future?
Last year didn’t see a reduction of cost of insulin or have it included in Medicare coverage; a lot of education around the rising costs has been shared. This will hopefully send the right message to those who hold those purse strings, that it’s not fair to charge so much for insulin.
However, 2017 was the first year that those with diabetes and on Medicare could get coverage for some automated glucose monitors. Hopefully, this trend continues and more monitors are covered for patients.
