Cost of insulin
An_251551 posted:
I have found being honest with my doctor helps. When my insurance was not paying for my insulin and supplies I was honest with him and for over six months he supplied everything for me by the things he received from the drug reps. Yes at times it ment me changing insulin several times but over all they were basically the same. We did have to adjust doses a little. But also check with the companies
