UPDATE 1-Lilly to offer insulin at discounted prices to certain patients


Eli Lilly and Co said on Tuesday that certain patients using its insulin products via a partnership with Express Scripts Holding Co could secure a discount of up to 40 percent. The discount - designed for patients who pay full retail prices at the pharmacy, such as those who are uninsured - is being put in place for products purchased on Blink Health mobile and web platforms, effective Jan. 1. Changes in insurance benefits have increased the cost of insulin for some people, Lilly said, noting that discounts and rebates don't directly help the uninsured or people in the deductible phase of their plans.
