New year, new deductible which means paying high prices for insulin and supplies. Yesterday I went to Walmart to have prescription of Humulun R U-500 filled. (I have been a type 2 diabetic since 2006 and extremely insulin resistant.)
The price for the insulin with my insurance was $747 for a months supply. Without insurance, it would be over $900!!!
How does anyone afford this? I am 55, single, make a decent living and don’t qualify for any assistance. BUT…$750 is a lot to spend each month until my deductible is met! And I’m not even talking about all the other necessary supplies.
So, yesterday, I didn’t have that kind of money so got the Novolin r and Novolin N. Of course this morning I was high, 257. Arrrrrgh!!! What to do?
