Iowans With Diabetes Feel the Effects of Insulin Price Increase
DES MOINES, Iowa -- Pharmacists and doctors say the price of insulin has steadily gone up for years and keeps rising. “It’s not a shortage. We are a developed country and we’ve been having issues with prices of medicines. It’s been going back to the early 2000’s and now it’s insulin’s turn, which is taking a big toll on patients,” Drake Associate Professor Pharmacy Practice Jamie Pitlick said.
