Lilly announced the launch of its Insulin Value Program to assist patients with or without commercial insurance with filling their monthly insulin prescriptions for $35.
Most Lilly insulins are covered under the program including all Humalog® (insulin lispro injection 100 units/mL) formulations. Patients can access the co-pay savings card by calling the Lilly Diabetes Solution Center at (833) 808-1234. Representatives at the Solution Center will be available 8am to 8pm (EDT) Monday through Friday to help patients obtain a card via email or US mail.
According to the Company, active co-pay cards with an amount higher than $35 have been reset to a $35 co-pay so no further action is necessary. Medicare/Medicaid patients or those under similar federal or state programs are not eligible for this savings program due to federal guidelines.
The Company also offers other affordability options to help with costs, including a generic version of Humalog U-100 at a 50% lower list price, as well as free insulin for individuals with minimal or no income that has been donated by Lilly to non-profit organizations.
“Too many people in the US have lost their jobs because of the COVID-19 crisis, and we want to make sure no one goes without their Lilly insulin,” said Mike Mason, president, Lilly Diabetes. “People with commercial insurance, as well as those without insurance at all, are eligible, and the process is quick and simple.”
