Legislation Caps the Price of Insulin at $35 for a 30 Day Supply


Legislation pending in the Illinois Senate further caps the price of prescription insulin. In 2019, lawmakers capped the cost of a monthly supply of insulin at 100 dollars. This bill lowers that cap to 35 dollars. It’s sponsored by Senator Laura Murphy of Des Plaines.

“In recent weeks, we have seen many makers announce they will be capping their cost at $35 as well. I applaud their commitment, but I want to ensure that this protection isn’t tried in law should these companies ever try to raise their prices again.”

Murphy’s legislation also creates a discount insulin program within the state department of public health. She says more than one million Illinoisans have insulin-dependent diabetes.
