The price of insulin could drop for Michigan residents, thanks to a bill introduced by State Rep. Sara Cambensy.
House bill 4336 would establish an insulin co–pay cap of $50 for a 30–day supply.
It is part a bipartisan bill package to increase healthcare access and make prescription drugs more affordable in Michigan.
Cambensy said as a type–1 diabetic herself she understands the fear that diabetics live with.
Other bills in the package would require more transparency from pharmacy benefit managers; stop insurance companies from requiring a patient to pay a higher copay if the cost to dispense medication is lower; allow telehealth visits from out–of state providers; prevent insurers from removing approved drugs during a plan year; and place limits on the gifts drug companies can give to doctors.
