Levemir company has a 2 yr program to help with the cost even if you have insurance. I am on the program and have health insurance and my insulin costs me $30 a month. Levemir is a pen.

I have an insurance called multi plan. It's horrible! They only cover $40 on a prescription and I can't get a 3 month supply. Humulin pens would have cost me $800! I don't know how much the Lantus pen was going to cost, but I don't see it being that much cheaper! I saw on the ADA forum that Walmart has insulin, it's made by Novolin specifically for Walmart. I'm on a 70/30 mix. Not sure if it comes in pens. But it's a lot more wallet friendly. I pay $24.88 for one vial and $12.88 for 100 syringes. I'm also in NY if that makes any difference to prices. I'm just so happy that Walmart has insulin or I'd be forgoing the much needed insulin.
Also they have meters and test strips! I get 100 strips for just under $20 without insurance. With insurance I was being charged $30!

$35 Beginning of the year and slowly goes up to $135 by the end of the year for co pay. Middle part of the year when you enter the so called doughnut hole that's when it start to get expensive for a month supply.
I inject Lantus and Novolog 2 separate co pay.
