I am a single Mom and trying to keep up with the cost of Novolog and Lantis Flex Pens. It is a constant struggle.
One easy thing to try is to see if you can get samples whenever possible from your endocrinologist. You can also contact the manufacturers to see if they have patient assistance programs. You can also google "(your state) state drug assistance" since many states offer discount programs. There are other assistance programs you can find online like NeedyMeds.org, Suddenly Senior (you dont have to be a senior to use), Partnership for Prescription assistance, Co Pay Relief Program, and patientassistance.com
Hi! Depending on your State and or your financial status, you should be able to get your insulin for next to nothing. Do you only want to use the flex pens? Some States think that a pen type is a "luxury" item. I know, its stupid. Lol but they do. I would first ask your Dr for help he or she might be able to do a "tar" on your meds. If that doesn't work try your state or even federal SSI offices for help. If your in California try to get on medi cal for assistance with paying for both your drs visits and costs of your meds. I hopes this helps! Good luck! Nanimal
