Insulin prices are skyrocketing, with the list price increasing nearly 700% since 1996 when adjusted for inflation, from $21 in 1996 to $255 in 2016. Reports have shown that 1 in 4 people are rationing their insulin due to cost. This is unconscionable. Colorado’s HB1216, now law, caps the monthly co-pay for insulin at $100, and it directs the Colorado Attorney General to investigate the rising costs of insulin. This is a huge WIN for people living with diabetes in Colorado!
