Congress is Fighting to Finish the Job of the Inflation Reduction Act by Extending the Insulin Copay Cap to all Diabetics
Phoenix, AZ — On Wednesday, April 12 at 11:00 AM AZ TIME, Rep. Ruben Gallego (AZ-03) will join Protect Our Care Arizona to discuss the ongoing efforts to expand the Inflation Reduction Act’s insulin savings to every Arizonan. The event will showcase the Inflation Reduction Act’s insulin cap that benefits more than three million seniors nationwide, including 63,185 Arizonans. Lowering insulin costs is especially important for people of color, who disproportionately suffer from diabetes and are more likely to skip, ration, or completely forgo insulin as a result of outrageous costs. Read more about how the lifesaving policy is helping Arizonans here.
Now, Congress is fighting to extend these savings to all Arizonans and people across the country. This would be a key step to ensuring access to the medicine an estimated 21 million patients need to thrive.
