What is #Coverage2Control?

JDRF is calling on insurers, employers, drug companies and the government to provide these three things that will help people with type 1 diabetes (T1D) control the disease.


Make out-of-pocket insulin and other costs predictable and reasonable.



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



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

Why better coverage matters

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, some insurers and employers have taken steps that limit patient choice and increase out-of-pocket costs. 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. Insurers, employers, drug companies and the government all have a responsibility to help.

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.
