Did you know that almost 35 million people have diabetes in the U.S.? This means that about 1 in 10 Americans are diagnosed with this disease. So, you could also be one of them. And if you are, you know how expensive the medication and supplies can be. In fact, it seems that 1 out of every 7 dollars spent on healthcare in 2017 was actually spent on diabetic care.
Luckily for people with diabetes, there are several programs available in the United States that can help you afford your diabetes-related medications, supplies, and devices. In other words, if you’re overwhelmed by the cost of your diabetes medications, the federal government, pharmaceutical companies, and nonprofit associations could help you lower your bill.
You just have to ask for help, and you’ll most likely get it.
