Insulin Affordability and Health Policy

Dr. Sherry Glied Thumbnail

“Now, what we see in our data is that what uninsured people do is that they don't buy them the latest formulations of insulin. They simply don't even use those. They use, more typically the basic, most generic forms of insulin, which are available at relatively low prices, but they don't have many of the benefits of the newer formulations.”

In this episode, Dr. Glied talks to us about all things insulin! We talk about the rising cost of insulin, insulin affordability, insulin cost for people with and without insurance, and the implications of the Build Back Better bill on insulin affordability. 

Sherry is a health economist, who is currently the Dean of the Wagner School of Public Service at NYU.  She previously served in government in the administrations of Presidents Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and George H.W. Bush.
