These are some resources you can contact in the U.S. for assistance if you cannot afford your prescriptions (insulin, diabetes supplies, etc.):
Additionally, you can talk to a diabetes educator or RN for free through the toll-free diabetes helpline offered by the Diabetes Wellness and Research foundation.
If you still can't find the kind of assistance you need, visit the listing of Government, Private + Charitable Assistance Programs for Persons with Diabetes offered by Islets of Hope, their Diabetes Assistance Program PDF or theSTATE-BY-STATE PARTNERSHIP FOR PRESCRIPTION ASSISTANCE page on dLife.
