INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – An amendment made this week to an Indiana insulin bill was rejected by the Indiana House Thursday.
The bill was co-authored by Jon Ford and aims to repeal the need for an insulin prescription, providing more purchasing options for insulin-dependent people. Senator Ford says Indiana is one of the few states around the nation that requires an insulin prescription.
Representative Robin Shackleford amended the bill to cap monthly insulin costs at $100.
