Today a Lilly glucagon kit costs $365.99. WOW. No wonder why most people with diabetes haven’t got one. WIth or without insurance, maybe they cannot afford it or the out of pocket co-pay. As documented by my picture, my insurance company paid 100% $365.99 for me to carry a Glucagon Emergency Kit. Use of this kit by a trained caregiver or first responder will prevent brain damage that begins after 30 minutes without adequate glucose. Beyond brain damage, this kit could save my life. To be on the safe side, 2 kits should be dispensed with every RX. If not 3. I should carry one with me at all times. If I worked in an office, I would keep one there. Wherever I spend time, it is safe to have one available for the first responders in that environment. And if the kit is used, another one needs to take its place immediately.
Please find out how much Glucagon costs you by getting a new prescription or a refill. Tell me – what is your copay? Based on a retail price of $365.99? Or more? Or less?
I want to hear from you and your friends with t1.
Thanks in advance for sharing.
