The American Diabetes Association Statement on Novo Nordisk’s Insulin Price Reduction

March 14, 2023 | Arlington, Virginia

“The American Diabetes Association® (ADA) is the leading voice advocating for insulin affordability and is working to ensure that all people with diabetes have access to the care they need. The ADA has led the charge to enact cost-sharing limits on insulin in 22 states and D.C., and now the first-ever federal copay cap in Medicare. We are pleased that more manufacturers are continuing to take steps to make insulin more affordable, and we hope others follow suit. ADA will keep working to make sure drug rebates are not inflating costs for patients at the pharmacy counter, and we will continue to support efforts to provide affordable insulin to everyone with diabetes who relies on it to survive.” - Lisa Murdock, ADA Chief Advocacy Officer
