Norcross to Convene Roundtable with South Jersey Type 1 Diabetics on the High Prices of Prescription Drugs, Including Insulin

 

CHERRY HILL, NJ – On Wednesday, August 21, 2019 at 2:00 p.m., Congressman Donald Norcross (NJ-01) will convene a roundtable discussion about the high cost of prescription drugs, including insulin, with South Jersey adults and youth living with Type 1 Diabetes.

 

“Throughout the year, I’ve been hearing from New Jersey patients, pharmacists and doctors about how the high prices are forcing people to make unthinkable choices. In these conversations, unaffordable insulin is often mentioned. That’s why I want to hear from the families directly impacted in our community and discuss how we can stand up to big pharma together,” said Congressman Donald Norcross. “Families are crying out for relief – we must rein in high prescription drug costs.”

 

The cost of prescription drugs in the United States has been steadily increasing and the price of four of the most popular types of insulin tripled over the past decade.
