Financial resources for type one diabetics


(Crystal) #1

Does anyone have resources for financial assistance for type one diabetics to offset exorbitant costs of medical equipment and insurance? I’m specifically interested in graduate school grants/ scholarships as I had to resign from teaching to deal with my new type one diagnosis then a major surgery subsequently. I am interested in providing counseling to those with addiction issues and mental health needs. While in graduate school I need the basics and inquiring about my diagnosis of type one disability qualifies me for food, shelter, medical care while attaining licensure.

@Claplante hi Crystal

the JDRF outreach has this document… which has a funny date but I think the links are good.

USA.GOV has this link https://www.usa.gov/disability-financial-support

and the American Diabetes Association - has these search results: http://google.diabetes.org/search?site=Diabetes&client=diabetes&entqr=3&oe=ISO-8859-1&ie=ISO-8859-1&ud=1&proxystylesheet=diabetes&output=xml_no_dtd&proxyreload=1&q=financial

good luck

Not sure if this helps, but Lilly also offers the Insulin Affordability program program
