For people with diabetes, being able to choose and afford what they need to control their disease is critical to survival.
But right now, it’s becoming harder — and more expensive — to control diabetes. Costs for insulin and diabetes management tools have soared and show no signs of stopping.

JDRF believes giving people with diabetes control over their choices and their healthcare expenses is not only the right thing to do; it’s also the smart thing. Making it easier for people with chronic conditions to manage their disease helps avoid emergency room visits and complications, keeps people healthy and productive — and reduces overall healthcare costs.
