Colorado's Insulin Price Cap Loophole
Loophole in insulin cap in Colorado leaves some residents paying two or three times the $100 cap, per month.
In January 2019, Colorado became the first state in the nation to cap the price on life-saving insulin. Most diabetics use insulin to control their blood sugar levels. The 2019 bill meant to cap the costs of insulin at $100 per month for Colorodians, but a loophole left some people paying $100 per prescription, leaving them responsible for $200, or even $300 a month because some diabetic individuals need more than one type of insulin to survive.
