The debate over healthcare has extended to all parts of medical care. One way that State Senator Andy Manar is trying to help is by reducing the skyrocketing prices of insulin. Senator Manar has introduced Senate Bill 667, which would cap out of pocket insulin expenses at $100 for a 30-day supply. Senator Manar says costs have gotten out of control.
State Representative Sue Scherer does not understand why America can’t get this right.
For some people like Megan Blair, a mother with diabetes, time is running out to cap these costs.
Several organizations are backing Senator Manar for this including the American Diabetes Association, Illinois State Medical Society, Illinois Pharamacists Association and the AARP.
