A new bill in the Ohio Legislature would cap the out-of-pocket amount diabetics pay for their insulin. Legislators heard from a woman who lost a child because she couldn't afford the drug.
As a diabetic child, Antroinette Worsham’s daughter got her insulin through a state program for children with medical handicaps but when she turned 21, she was no longer eligible. She couldn’t afford it. She rationed it and within a year, she died. Now Worsham’s younger daughter, who is also a diabetic, is close to aging out of the program.
