Take action here
The Affordable Insulin for the COVID-19 Emergency Act would ensure that insulin-dependent Medicare beneficiaries are able to obtain insulin with no co-pays, coinsurance, or deductibles during the COVID-19 emergency.
The Minority Diabetes Initiative Act would provide grants to community-based organizations and non-profit health care providers for diabetes prevention, care and treatment in communities of color. The grants would help put our health care system on a path toward health equity.

COVID-19 has had an outsize toll on the diabetes community, and shone a spotlight on the systemic barriers to care that low-income Americans and people of color faced long before the pandemic and will persist without meaningful change.
Together, let’s raise our voices and urge Congress to support these important bills. Thanks in advance for taking action to support the diabetes community.
