Did you know that 1 in every 3 Medicare beneficiaries has diabetes?
According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), this translates to over 3.3 million American seniors relying on some form of insulin. Before this year, many individuals on Medicare struggled to pay for their life-preserving medication because Part D programs did not offer supplemental benefits to lower costs in the coverage gap phase. People with diabetes who do not take their insulin as prescribed face an increased risk of stroke, vision loss, foot ulcers (and possibly amputations), and even heart attacks. So this has been a stressor on patients, caretakers, medical professionals, and the economy.
