Statement on Amazon Pharmacy Automatic Coupons for Insulin

August 15, 2023 | Arlington, Virginia

“Access to affordable diabetes medications and technology can help people living with diabetes stay healthy and avoid complications. Sadly, some of the 37.3 million Americans living with diabetes can’t afford the treatments they need to survive,” said Charles “Chuck” Henderson, chief executive officer of the American Diabetes Association ® (ADA). “The ADA has been the leading voice in advocating for affordable insulin and diabetes technology. We applaud Amazon Pharmacy for innovating on behalf of people with diabetes and taking important action to help ensure they easily access the treatments they need through a transparent purchase process that automatically applies any eligible discounts.”
