● Anyone in the U.S. can get Humalog, Novolog and other insulins for $0 to $30. Several options have no income limits or applications, so everyone qualifies.
● We are the Cheap Insulin Foundation (CIF), a new nonprofit created to help everybody get cheap or free insulin, insulin pumps & continuous glucose monitors (CGM's).
● To do this, we help diabetics take advantage of existing options (especially the little-known 340b program) by publishing details here, and by providing free, individual assistance.
● Plus, we actively reach out to those needing help by posting (and responding to posts) on the most popular diabetes Facebook groups.
● We also publicize details of the main cause of high US insulin prices (huge, secretive "drug rebates" paid to insurers and PBM's), and advocate for an immediate, permanent solution.

Thanks to the federal 340b drug discount program, anybody in the US can get insulin and other medications for incredibly low prices, just by seeing a medical provider at any community health center in the country.
The best discounts apply to Humalog, Novolog, Novolin and Levemir. For example, the exact same 10 ml vial of Humalog that now retails for more than $300, can be bought for between $2 and $25 per vial, depending on the particular health center, pharmacy, and whether you get a 30/60/90 day supply (which often means a much lower per-vial price).
The main reason for high insulin prices is NOT a mysterious combination of drug-company greed, research costs, and a "complicated" pricing system.
The main problem are huge "drug rebates" (up to 75% of the retail price) that insulin companies must pay to insurers and PBMs in order to get favorable coverage for their brands in US health plans.
Click below to see how most of your "out-of-pocket" expenses may end up "in the pocket" of your insurance company, and how a 20% co-pay may actually be a 70% percent co-pay.
Insulin Pumps & CGMs can dramatically improve glucose levels & quality of life. They can be expensive, but there are programs & resources to help.
If you need help getting cheap insulin (or free insulin), an affordable insulin pump or CGM, or if you have any questions, please send us a message and we'll try to help.
