If you suddenly have an urgent need for insulin here is a resource in English and Spanish.
Beyond Type 1 has put together a very important page in both English and Spanish to assist anyone who needs help accessing insulin found here https://getinsulin.org/.
The link includes how to get insulin in an urgent situation, ways to continue to get insulin long term based on where you are located, and additional access to insulin resources. The action plan will ask you a few questions such as what insulin you use, income, if you have insurance, etc. and then match you with an application you are eligible to fill out to receive a prescription. You will be able to open and fill the application out right away.
It’s possible for anyone to run into emergency situations and everyone who uses insulin or knows and loves someone who does should be aware of what can be done if a situation was to arise. Additionally, raising awareness of what is out there can save lives. On that note, keep on advocating insulin for all.
