Bipartisan bill would cap insulin costs in Connecticut

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut lawmakers say there's bipartisan support this session for a bill that would place limits on out-of-pocket costs for insulin-dependent diabetics. There are an estimated 355,000 diabetics in the state and many have seen the price of the life-saving drug skyrocket in recent years. A group of Democrats and Republicans have been working on legislation that would cap total out-of-pocket costs for insulin and diabetic supplies, such as test strips and glucose testing monitors, at $100 a month. Similar legislation that caps just insulin costs was recently enacted in Colorado and Illinois. Drug companies say they offer insulin affordability programs.
