Kentucky bill would cap cost of insulin at $100 per month

Ten-year-old Bryce George knows how lucky he is, he said Friday night.

Although he’s had type 1 diabetes since he was a toddler, his family can afford to take care of him — both his parents have insurance, allowing them to purchase the insulin he needs to balance his blood sugar for only about $100 each month.

If they didn’t, they would be even more at the mercy of a pharmaceutical pricing system that’s raised the price of the life-saving drug by more than 300% in the last 20 years.
