Illinois Alliance for Retired Americans
Illinois Alliance for Retired Americans is at PCC Community Wellness Center (Austin).Saturday, October 12th, 2019 at 7:48am
Today, IARA Executive Vice President Miller Rodgers joined Governor JB Pritzker and our partners from Citizen Action Illinois, Shriver Center on Poverty Law, Protect Our Care Illinois, and AARP Illinois in support SB 667, sponsored by our legislative leaders State Senator Andy Manar and State Representative Will Guzzardi. This bill would cap patients' co-pays for insulin at $100 a month for a 30 day supply. There are over 7.4 million people in the U.S. who require insulin to survive. Because the cost of insulin has tripled between 2002-2013, some patients ration insulin or seek treatment outside of the U.S. Its time that we end this health risk and lift the financial burden on patients requiring insulin in Illinois. #insulin4all #LowerDrugCosts.
