The American Diabetes Association (ADA) declared this week that no one should go without lifesaving medication, especially insulin, because of inability to afford it or gain access to it.
The ADA pointed out that insulin is unique because there are currently no alternative medications when a person’s body does not produce the hormone naturally. It is also the only medication a diabetic is able to use in a potentially life-threatening diabetic medical crisis.
The ADA supports many public policy and private sector emerging programs to fix problems of prohibitive costs and lack of accessibility and is always on the lookout for new solutions to support. A priority of the ADA is pricing transparency between pharmacy benefit managers, insurers and retailers with the goal of finding lasting and affordable solutions.
The American Diabetes Association works to find a cure for the disease and help those currently affected by diabetes.
The association also funds research to prevent, cure and manage diabetes; delivers services to hundreds of communities; provides objective and credible information; and gives voice to those denied their rights because of diabetes.
Diabetes medication must be affordable to all, ADA declares
