SALT LAKE CITY — The Legislature has passed a bill that will make it easier for some people to access insulin as well as sets a cap on the price.
House Bill 207 Insulin Access and Amendments, sponsored by Provo Representative Norman Thurston, passed through the legislature by a large majority and will now be headed to Gov. Gary Herbert's desk for him to either sign or veto.
The multi-pronged bill would require that health plans cover insulin with no deductible in the lowest co-pay tier, meaning the cost could be entirely covered. A cap would also be set at a $30 co-pay per month per prescription.
