About the Insulin Pricing Scheme

One in four healthcare dollars is spent caring for people with diabetes. The price range for insulin can range from $300 to $700 despite costing manufacturers as little as $2 to produce.

The Insulin Pricing Scheme class action lawsuit brought by consumers in multiple states claims the defendants – all major players in the pharma industry – engineered insulin price increases via an opaque, conspiratorial kickback scheme which has exponentially increased their profits at the expense of payors like Plaintiff and its plan members. The Insulin Pricing Scheme is a multibillion-dollar industry with many of the corporate defendants listed in the top 20 of the 2022 Fortune 500 list.
