Re: [IP] Humalog $ increase



My question is how are people going to pay for this insulin if they don't
have health insurance? It's crazy!! My brother's girlfriend is also diabetic
with no insurance. For me, I thank G'd for my husband's Blue Cross!! Insulin
is not a play toy!! We need it to survive!! It's not like not taking a
Tylenol when you need it. Without insulin, we die!! Period. Should I remind
us all how much my parents paid for a vial of insulin in 1972? Ninety-nine
cents!!!!!!!!!!! So what, they're now being made in a laboratory. So, it
should be cheaper not more expensive!! My heart goes out to those without
insurance.

Thanks for listening!
