House Panel Approves Bill to Cap Insulin Costs
By The Associated Press
FRANKFORT - A Kentucky House committee has approved a bill to cap out-of-pocket costs that many Kentuckians with diabetes pay for insulin.

The measure cleared the House Health and Family Services Committee Thursday without opposition. It goes to the full House next.

The bill would limit out-of-pocket costs to $100 per prescription for a 30-day insulin supply. That cap would apply only to people with commercial health insurance plans.

The push to provide relief for Kentuckians struggling to afford insulin is supported by Gov. Andy Beshear. He mentioned the issue in his State of the Commonwealth speech last month.
