Controlling Costs for West Virginians with Diabetes Bill Finish Line Just a Few Steps Away

Yesterday, the full House of Delegates voted to pass HB 4252 with 94 Yeas and only 3 Nays (Three Delegates were absent).  Let’s keep the momentum going!  Take Action!

HB 4252 would cap a month’s supply of insulin at $35 (it is now capped at $100) and limit cost-sharing for devices and equipment to a $100/month copay cap for supplies and equipment (including glucometers, test strips, lancing devices and lancets, and syringes).  The bill as passed also has a $250 cap for an insulin pump redeemable every two years.  

This bill has been sent to the Senate and referred to just one committee, the Senate Health and Human Resources Committee.  The referral to a single committee is a positive sign that this bill has bipartisan support in the state legislature (see this OpEd). But our Senators need to hear from us!

Now we need to get this bill across the finish line. It only takes a minute to call and email the Senate Committee Chairs to support HB 4252 here
