(Missourinet) – Missouri U-S Senator Josh Hawley is sponsoring a bill that would cap insulin prices across the nation.
The proposal would cap out-of-pocket costs at 25 dollars for a one-month supply of insulin, for both Medicare and privately-run healthcare plans. In a press release, Hawley says the price of insulin is straining household budgets while families are already dealing with high inflation. Jackson County, Missouri is suing 3 insulin manufacturers over the costs, which range from 300 to 700 dollars a month.
