S.B. 410 changes the way insurance carriers provide services and supplies to people with diabetes in the state of Maryland.

Ask Oklahoma legislators to cap insulin copays!
Insulin has become harder to affordably access in this age of high copay requirements. For some individuals relying on insulin, copayments can be astronomically high - $150, $200, or even $500 depending on their insurance plan. Capping the copayment for insulin at $100 would be a huge step forward in making insulin more accessible for Oklahomans.
