People with diabetes are not more likely to get COVID-19 than the general population, but individuals with diabetes do face a higher chance of experiencing serious complications if they contract COVID-19

  • Plan ahead for your insulin needs.
  • Consider using mail order if that is an option through your insurance.
  • During this state of emergency some insurers are waiving the early medication refill limits on 30-day prescriptions. Call your insurer to find out.
  • Manufacturers are not reporting that COVID-19 is impacting access to insulin and other supplies.
