When Josh Wilkerson turned 26, he aged out of his stepfather’s private health insurance and he was unable to afford his nearly $1,200-a-month insulin.

He began rationing his pricey prescription, before a doctor recommended taking ReliOn, an over-the-counter brand sold for $25 a vial at Walmart.

“It didn’t work for his body,” his mom, Erin Wilson-Weaver, tells The Post. Her son died June 14, and she’s still in mourning — but determined to advocate in his memory.


Since you guys hate the idea of universal healthcare, what will prevent things like this from happening. Or is it just a case of SOL?

Eli Lilly introduced Lispro back in March which is half the price of their Humalog product.

Come on Trumpkins. You guys constantly complain about Obamacare, and now I'm sure you complain about MFA or single payer. This is you opportunity to tell us how we, as the greatest country ever, can provide reasonable healthcare for all of our citizens. Don't be shy.

When you admit that the ACA drove out many insurers in the private health care sector, and drove up the costs for many more, then maybe we'll talk.............

8 years of b!tching ab Obamacare and they still have no freaking clue as to what a better idea is that doesn't include single payer or MFA. Looks like, as expected, they have tapped out.

I've tried to explain this in other posts. The ACA has never pulled the plug on a single insurance company or a single customer for their services. It did set into motion a legitimate process of requiring the insurance companies to provide certain minimum coverages. Prior to the ACA and even still there are insurance companies that sell for much money policies that aren't worth the paper they're written on. The people that have those policies typically don't find out that their policies are worthless until they have medical needs. At that point many of them can only rely on the generosities of the taxpayer supported clinics and hospitals. It really is much sadder than you think.

And the investigations continue,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
