According to the American Diabetes Association, more than 30 million Americans live with diabetes. Each year, people diagnosed with diabetes incur on average, $16,752 per year on medical expenses, which is 2.3X greater than a person without diabetes. Some of those expenses include doctors’ visits, insulin medication, blood testing strips, insulin pumps, lancets, and so on. That all starts to add up quickly. Regardless of what your healthcare insurance plan looks like, individuals with diabetes have to face way higher medical costs, and that can often lead to people reducing or delaying the medication they need because they can’t afford it.
