At Compass Community Health Care Center we are dedicated to providing the best health care possible. We are listening to our patients, families, and community with their health concerns and questions. Watch for #LiveWellWednesday posts each Wednesday, which focus on giving you the information and tips you need to understand current health care concerns and topics.

Today’s topic is The Cost of Treating Diabetes by Andy Pierron, Compass Community Health Care Center Pharmacist.

In honor of November being Diabetes Awareness Month, we will be highlighting ways to help keep you on the road to good health, all this month during our #LiveWellWednesday posts. Be sure and check back each Wednesday afternoon for more information on diabetes provided by Compass Community Health Care Center Providers. 

As of January 1st Novolog, Novlin, and Levemir are all just $8.00 in multi-dose vials with a prescription from one of Compass Community Health’s providers.  In addition, Actos is just $14.00, Januvia is $3.50, Invokamet XR is $33.00 and Bydureon is just $18.00.  Not to mention the already low cost of glimepiride, glipizide, and metformin already offered.

This range of diabetic medication can be beneficial to all diabetics regardless of type of progression.  If you are newly diagnosed or have had diabetes most of your life, these affordable medications can help you.

Maintaining a normal blood sugar takes a lifetime of commitment but can reduce the likelihood of stroke, heart attack, blindness, neuropathy, and even amputations.  The team at Compass Community Health would like to help you with this commitment and your commitment to your health.  For more information on this topic or the Compass Pharmacy contact us at 740-351-1500.  You can also email the Compass Pharmacy at refills@compasscommunityhealth.org.  Our healthcare providers and team can be reached at 740-355-7102.
