Shouldn’t happen in a developed country

Shitty Life Tip - Rob a bank. Getaway with it, keep the money. Get caught, prison must supply you insulin.

It's a bad scene. That's a true story. Happened about four years ago. The upside is that Biden pushed for, and signed, the Inflation Reduction Act. At the very least it caps insulin costs at 35 bucks a month for those on Medicare. Wouldn't have helped that kid though. Which is why the legislation included similar steps for everyone in need of insulin.

But, you know, Republicans.

Spectrum News [i] But the legislation does not extend the price cap to the millions of Americans with diabetes who either have private insurance or no insurance at all. A Republican-led motion to strip a provision from the bill which would have extended the insulin cap to Americans on private insurance was successful, despite the support of all 50 Senate Democrats and 7 Republicans. The measure needed 60 votes.[/i]
What makes this even more fucked up. Thousands if not millions of Americans travel to Canada because the US has up to a 900% mark up on insulin. And that is without the extortionist insurance.

Company insurance is a joke.

Even if he could have afforded it they wouldn't have paid because "pre-existing condition."
