(StatePoint) A new campaign is encouraging people to take action during open enrollment to lower their insulin costs.
The campaign, “Insulin Affordability: Learn. Act. Share.” encourages those who use Lilly insulin to:
• Learn about affordability options
• Act by visiting insulinaffordability.com or calling the Lilly Diabetes Solution Center
• Share this information with others who may benefit.
Among Lilly’s suite of solutions is the Lilly Insulin Value Program, which reduces out-of-pocket costs for Lilly insulins to $35 per month. People without insurance, as well as those with commercial insurance, are eligible.
Beginning in January 2021, people enrolled in participating Medicare Part D insurance plans will be able to access their Lilly insulin for $35 per month as part of the Medicare Part D Senior Savings Model. During open enrollment, it’s important that seniors enroll in a participating Medicare Part D plan that covers their insulin. That’s why Lilly created a resource allowing users to enter their zip code to view which Medicare plans are participating and covering Lilly insulins.
To learn more, visit insulinaffordability.com or call the Lilly Diabetes Solution Center at (833) 808-1234 to speak with a live representative. Representatives can help identify which options best meet an individual’s needs, including accessing donated Lilly insulin for those who qualify. Translations are available in numerous languages.
“It’s important that people living with diabetes are aware of insulin affordability options and take action to benefit from them,” says Andy Vicari, Lilly’s U.S. insulins brand leader.
