Wellness Wednesday: Drug maker Eli Lilly announces price cap on commonly prescribed insulin

Drug maker Eli Lilly last week announced that those with private insurance would pay a maximum of $35 dollars per month for its most commonly prescribed insulin.

The move comes as drug makers face intense pressure from the Biden administration, patient advocates and others to lower their prices.
