The Type 1 Diabetes Defense Foundation Files New Lawsuits Alleging Overpricing, Requesting Disclosure of Manufacturers’ Effective Net Realized Prices for Test Strips, Glucagon

Summary: On May 24, 2017, the Type 1 Diabetes Defense Foundation filed two new lawsuits in federal court with class-action law firm Keller Rohrback, L.L.P., seeking disclosure of manufacturers’ net realized prices on blood glucose test strips and emergency glucagon kits, both used in diabetes treatment. Following on T1DF’s insulin pricing lawsuit filed March 17, 2017 (Boss, et al. v. CVS, et al.), T1DF now joins with individual plaintiffs in test strip claim Prescott, et al. v. CVS, et al. and glucagon claim Bewley, et al. v. CVS, et al., expanding its consumer rights campaign against the unconscionable pricing of essential pharmaceuticals. These lawsuits are consistent with T1DF’s opposition to “rebates” and other hidden pricing practices that raise list prices for diabetes drugs and supplies while disincentivizing innovation, promoting clinical inertia, undermining therapeutic adherence and encouraging discrimination against people with diabetes.
