KYA Bill Inspires Lawmakers

Millions of people pay hundreds of dollars a month for medication they need to live. We’re talking about diabetics.

Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed a new bill into law to cap out-of-pocket insulin costs at $100 for a 30-day supply. A similar bill is moving through the Kentucky legislature.

The exact wording in Kentucky Senate Bill 69 is to "cap the cost-sharing requirements for prescription insulin at $100 per 30-day supply." The bill would also require the state employee health plan to comply.
