If we were to use Medicare, my medication would cost my family up to $1,800 per month. That’s completely unaffordable.
Patients like me shouldn’t have to fear for their health just because they can’t afford their medications.
I just want to be able to enjoy my time and not have trouble breathing or managing my blood sugar.
At the beginning of this year, I was stunned to find out that my Flexipen would cost $450 for a month’s supply.
This is a life or death matter, and patients deserve better.
I can’t imagine what will happen once I get older and need more medication –– and I fear for when that day comes.
