For those with diabetes, this time can be hard if you lost your job or if you no longer have health insurance. One insulin provider is making things easier with its new program to receive insulin for free.
People with diabetes using Novo Nordisk insulin and have lost their health insurance due to the coronavirus pandemic are eligible to enroll in the Diabetes Patient Assistance Program and receive insulin free of charge for 90 days.
Applicants are not required to provide proof of income but they must provide documentation showing loss of healthcare benefits such as a termination letter or proof that COBRA benefits are being offered.
If you are planning to apply for this program, you must have a valid prescription for a Novo Nordisk insulin and meet certain criteria, which can be found on NovoCare.com or by calling 1.844.NOVO4ME (668.6463).
