You probably already know that diabetes care can be expensive. In fact, in a study by the American Diabetes Association (ADA), people with diabetes spend an average of $16,752 per year on medical expenses—$9,601 of that is just on diabetes (2017).
And don’t forget about the Affordable Care Act (ACA). If you don’t have coverage from an employer, you may be able to get coverage through the ACA. Your children can also be on your plan up until age 26. For health insurance information after age 26, call the American Diabetes Association’s National Call Center at 1-800-DIABETES (1-800-342-2383).
That's just a start. There are many more programs out there dedicated to helping.
