My cost i s minimal since I use Walmart Novolin and syringes.. But I asked my Doctor to wright a prescription so I could avoid the 6% sales tax !!!
Even being on a pump & Medicare I can’t afford my insulin. That fixed income thing. My share of the Novolog co-pay is 3/4 of my check.
There was a time when I worked and ran out of insulin couldn’t get to the city for two more days and he gave me a bottle of insulin no charge I didn’t have insurance at that time
If you have ever been unable to afford your diabetes supplies, or if you hypothetically ever were unable to afford your diabetes supplies, how comfortable would you feel telling your doctor? Cancel reply

I am comfortable telling my doctor anything. If I weren’t, I would seek a different doctor. I don’t see how a doctor can provide someone the optimal health benefit if (s)he is not completely informed.
