Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota is the latest insurer to jump into the race to limit consumers spending on insulin.

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota jumped into the race to ease consumers' spending on insulin Thursday, announcing new benefits in which members of its fully insured health plans will be able to obtain many forms of insulin with $0 of cost-sharing for 2020.

Eagan-based Blue Cross becomes the third insurer in three weeks to announce changes to its 2020 insulin coverage that are intended to lower out-of-pocket spending on insulin, a potentially lifesaving drug for people with diabetes that can cost members hundreds or even thousands of dollars a year out of pocket.
