  1. I’ve been very fortunate in that my insurance company seems to believe in proactive management and has covered all my requests. However, I have friends who are on Medicare and that’s a problem for them, as it is for many others who have ACA coverage and high deductible plans. Recently we’ve heard a lot about the skyrocketing prices of life giving medications like the Epi Pen and today I saw Bernie Sanders railing against the insulin makers. There’s a serious problem in this country when pharma companies set prices unrealistically high and give rebates to the pharmacy management companies, and others. The “list price” is way inflated and in my non-legal mind that is nothing less than fraud. We need to rally our governmental representatives to fight on our behalf.
    Thanks for listening,

  2. I agree wholeheartedly with LiveABetes on the extremely high cost of insulin for those many, many United States Citizens that are on Medicare. I am insulin resistant and I have to take a lot of insulin to keep me alive and the cost, through Medicare, is more than I can afford. I tried taking less insulin and I had serious problems with my A1C and my doctor told me, either take the correct amount of insulin or you will die. Who is out there that can help Seniors with the high costs of Insulin to allow us to stay alive?
