The price of staying alive

Here is our CVS receipt for insulin. V needs it to live, plain and simple. And thanks to puberty she needs a lot of it. The retail price of each vial is over $300. Retail price for V’s 3-months supply is nearly $3000. With insurance AND discount program from Novo Nordisk, our price goes down to $75. We are very fortunate to have decent insurance. This is fucked up.
