I've seen discussions about people needing financial help to afford their diabetes medications. I found this info and hope it helps.

The Partnership for Prescription Assistance works with pharmaceutical companies, doctors, other health care providers, patient advocacy organizations and community groups to help qualifying patients who lack prescription coverage get the medicines they need through the public and private programs. Many patients receive free or nearly free assistance. Following is a list of pharmaceutical companies you can call regarding your particular medications as well as a state-by-state list of local assistance that is available.

PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES

Abbott Diabetes Care Patient Assistance Program
The Abbott Diabetes Care Patient Assistance Program offers assistance on blood glucose meters and strips to low-income patients in the United States.

We donated nearly 3,500 blood glucose meters and more than 35,000 boxes of blood glucose strips. For more information about this program, visit www.abbottdiabetescare.com.

i was able to get my medication directly from the manufacture at a reduced costusing an advocacy group. They made the process really simple and stress free and i am finally able to afford my medcation! They helped me get my Lantus and Novolog. www.patientassistance123.com (888) 507 -9123
i would recommend them to anyone that is struggling to pay for their medication
