You can thank Medicare for Lower Insulin Costs

Disclaimer: I am posting information that you can find on the CMS (Medicare) website.  I am not promoting information on specific Medicare Advantage or Drug plans.

Part D costs:  Your Medicare drug plan can’t charge you more than $35 for a one-month supply of each Part D-covered insulin, and you don’t have to pay a deductible. You’ll pay $35 (or less) for a one-month supply of each Part D-covered insulin product, even if you get Extra Help to lower your prescription drug costs.  If you get a 3-month supply of insulin, your costs can’t be more than $105 ($35 for each month’s supply).

Part B costs:  If you are receiving insulin through Part B, the same applies.  In addition, you will not suffer Part B deductible costs.
