Tell insurance companies to provide coverage that works for people with type 1 diabetes.

What is #Coverage2Control?

JDRF is calling on insurance companies to provide these three things that will help people with type 1 diabetes (T1D) control the disease.


Keep out-of-pocket insurance costs predictable and reasonable for insulin and diabetes management tools.


Give people the freedom to choose the insulin pump that’s right for them.


Cover all life-saving technology, including the artificial pancreas.

I didn't choose to get type one diabetes – my immune system turned on itself when I was 10. I need insurance that makes insulin affordable, so I don’t have to choose between insulin and rent, or insulin and food. That shouldn’t be a choice anyone has to make.

Giving people with diabetes control over their choices and their healthcare expenses is not only the right thing to do; it’s also the smart thing.

Fight for better coverage

More choice makes it easier for people with chronic conditions to manage their disease which helps avoid emergency room visits and complications, keeps people healthy and productive — and reduces overall healthcare costs.

Why it matters

For the 1.25 million people with T1D, being able to choose and afford the tools they need to control their disease is critical to survival. So is health coverage, and insurers have a responsibility to help. But right now, the ability to control T1D is at risk. It’s becoming harder and more expensive. Costs for insulin and diabetes management tools have soared and show no signs of stopping. To make matters worse, insurers have taken steps that limits patient choice and the coverage of some life-saving technology.
