Democrats plan to limit insulin to $35 a month. Republicans won’t say whether they’ll block it.

It’s an open question whether Democrats will pass their Better Rebuild bill this year or ever – Sen. Joe Manchin (DW.Va.) reminiscent of his surroundings on Monday, even as he and President Biden talked about the bill on the phone. But the version of the bill that has already passed the House and is moving through the Senate will cap insulin costs at $35 a month for those with insurance, privately or through Medicaid. Biden touted this provision of the bill last week.

Vincent Rajkumar, a Mayo Clinic physician, talk to Post. “The possibility of continued annual price increases on the same product only occurs in the absence of market forces” to keep drugmakers in check.
