Cap Insulin Prices in Arkansas

0 have signed. Let’s get to 75,000!

My son JT was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes December 22nd, 2018. I quickly learned how expensive his life-saving insulin can be. Type 1 diabetes affects approximately 1.25 million Americans and 200,000 of them are youth.

Insulin is NOT a cure for type 1 diabetes - it is a necessary treatment that helps people managing type 1 diabetes survive. Insulin should not be so expensive that people have to worry about how they’re going to afford this life-saving medication. No one should ever lose their life because they cannot afford the medication that is required for them live.

The price of insulin has risen to an unreal number. Some states have already placed a cap on the price of insulin, with many more states joining the movement. The pharmaceutical companies that control insulin pricing should be ashamed. A cap on insulin prices can help put some humanity back into our healthcare system by making care more affordable for thousands of people. Help make this legislation a reality. 

Add your signature and tell the Arkansas Legislature to cap the price of insulin in Arkansas. If Colorado can do it, so can Arkansas, and so can every state so that no matter where a diabetic lives, they can access life-saving medication without emptying their bank accounts.
