My Insurance carrier, UnitedHealth Care, is eliminating coverage of Lantus in April. What are my options? Is Basaglar an acceptable replacement?
dchaney; Yes this is just another brand that should save you and the Insurance money prior to april talk to your doctor because you may need a new rx called in or talk to your Pharmacist and see if they do need an rx or can they just exchange. Also in the search bar above you should type in the Basaglar hit enter go to the site and see if you can get one of there offers that well help you with the cost of the insulin and there is no dose change from Lantus to Basaglar. Now here is a little I copied and paste below. Just remember to check with the Pharmacist prior to April so just in case there is anything you have to do this is going to be okay. The company that is making this new one is the original comany that makes almost all the other Insulins. Lilly Here is your copy and paste. Chuck1957

BASAGLAR dosing should be the same as Lantus when transitioning patients from Lantus1
From Lantus® (insulin glargine injection) 100 units/mL
The dose of BASAGLAR should be the same as Lantus and the time of day for administration should be determined by the healthcare professional.
