Insulin Makers Lower Costs as COVID-19 Crisis DeepensTop insulin makers are offering programs to help patients with diabetes stay on their medicine, providing insulin for free or at steep discounts.

The following is an alphabetical listing of insulin makers and a summary of their discounts and other offerings to date:

Eli Lilly
Eli Lilly’s new value program provides Humalog and most other Lilly insulins for $35 a month to people with private insurance or without insurance.

Novo Nordisk
Novo Nordisk is offering free insulin for at least three months to those who have lost their insurance. Patients must show that because of the pandemic they’ve lost their job and their health insurance, or they’ve started paying for insurance under the COBRA program. You can apply here.

Their assistance program lets most patients with private insurance get Lantus and other insulins for free or $10 monthly. Qualified low-and middle-income patients can get insulin and other Sanofi medicines for free through the Sanofi Patient Connection program.
