Manufacturer prices for insulin in the United States were “considerably” — often five or 10 times — higher than those in other Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development countries, according to a new report from researchers at RAND Corp. The average price per unit across all types of insulin in the United States was $98.70, the report said, while other countries would have paid a fraction of that for the same insulins. In addition, “the analysis suggests that U.S. insulin prices would still have been considerably higher — about four times higher — than those in other countries even when accounting for potential rebates,” researchers wrote.
