The High Cost of Insulin in the US and How to Buy Your Medication From Canada

USA Script Helpers

Insulin is one of the most expensive prescription drugs on the market. For many Americans living with diabetes, this can be a serious problem as insulin is essential for basic life functions. But what causes insulin to be so costly? And are there any options for buying insulin at a lower price? Let’s take a look. 

Why Is Insulin So Expensive In The USA? 

Manufacturing Practices & Market Competition 

It’s worth noting that market competition (or lack thereof) plays a role in driving up costs; due to patent protection laws and the fact that there are only three major manufacturers (Eli Lilly & Co., Novo Nordisk A/S and Sanofi SA), there isn’t enough competition in the market place which limits access to affordable options. 

Human Insulin to Analog Insulin

This sharp rise in price has been attributed to several factors, including drugmakers switching from producing human insulin to producing analog insulins (which are much more expensive) and pharmaceutical companies’ ability to set their own prices without any government regulation or oversight. 

The Impact On Patients And Families 

This sharp rise in insulin pricing has had an immense impact on patients and their families who rely on this life-saving medication. Those who are uninsured or underinsured cannot afford their prescriptions and must turn to alternative methods such as rationing or buying from foreign countries where prices are lower. 

This can be dangerous as it increases the risk for complications due to skipping doses or using expired medications. Even those with insurance face high out-of-pocket costs due to rising co-pays and deductibles which can make affording insulin nearly impossible for many families. 

How You Can Buy Your Insulin From Canada 

For many Americans living with diabetes who cannot afford the high cost of insulin, buying medications from Canada can be an attractive option. Canadian pharmacies offer lower prices on prescription drugs than those found in the US.

People living with diabetes can also buy insulin online through a Canadian-based pharmacy like USA Script Helpers. This online pharmacy offers both short-acting and long-acting insulins, as well as other diabetes-related medications and supplies. USA Script Helpers makes buying insulin easy and convenient with its simplified ordering process.
