What We’re Reading: Free Insulin Pen Offer

Even with health insurance, having diabetes can be an expensive endeavor, with all the blood glucose strips, lancets, medicines, and other assorted medical paraphernalia needing to be purchased (to say nothing of the routine checkups with various health-care providers). This makes offers of free diabetes devices, such as the one extended by this Eli Lilly and Company coupon, all the more welcome.

Customers presenting a new Humalog KwikPen prescription along with the coupon at their retail pharmacy will receive a free five-pack of the Humalog KwikPen, Humalog Mix75/25 KwikPen, or Humalog Mix50/50 KwikPen. The pens are prefilled with 3 milliliters of a fast-acting Humalog insulin analog[1] and do not require refrigeration after the first use. (Unused pens should be stored in the refrigerator.)

There are a number of restrictions to using this voucher. For instance, the offer does not include the pen needles, is open to residents of the United States only, and cannot be used by people whose claims for the Humalog KwikPen are reimbursed by a government health-insurance program such as Medicare or Medicaid.

For people who are eligible to take advantage of this opportunity, the coupon is valid until December 31, 2008.
