'We've got a deal': Minnesota lawmakers work out affordable insulin program

 

Columbus Dispatch

Rising costs have caused almost half of diabetics occasionally to skip taking their insulin, according to a 2018 survey.

Amid continuing friction between DFL and Republican lawmakers, key negotiators in the Minnesota Legislature said Tuesday that they have reached a tentative deal to create an emergency insulin program for diabetics who can't afford the lifesaving drug.

The agreement, set to be ratified when the Legislature convenes again next week, represents a breakthrough for behind-the-scenes talks that began soon after DFL-backed insulin legislation collapsed at the end of the 2019 session.
