Letter of Support for the Affordable Insulin Now Act
Today, First Focus Campaign for Children sent a letter to Senator Raphael Warnock — author of the Affordable Insulin Now Act (S. 3700) — in support of the legislation.
Excerpt from the letter:
The Affordable Insulin Now Act is an effective measure to help parents and caregivers afford insulin for their children. The bill limits cost-sharing for insulin users on private health insurance or on Medicare. Cost sharing would become capped at $35 monthly or 25% of a plan’s negotiated price, depending on which is less. This is beneficial because it stops companies from overpricing insulin and keeps it affordable for families. If children have access to their medications, it will help reduce hospitalizations and reduce kidney disease. This is a win-win not only for children and their families but for insurance companies and the government.
