“It is important for MannKind to help those whose lives depend on
insulin, and, unfortunately, over 65,000 uninsured or underinsured patients
today must pay cash for their insulin each month,” explained Michael
Castagna, Chief Executive Officer of MannKind. “Our new program lets us
streamline the numerous costs and inefficiencies that exist in today’s
health care system, so we can pass along the savings directly for these
patients. We want to be part of the solution for the future of health care
and healthy living. Our founder Al Mann had a vision of making this product
available to all people living with diabetes, and it’s concerning that
rising costs may cause some with diabetes to go without insulin. We hope that
our new programs will help many in need.”
