IN State Capitol

A trio of Indiana state senators are sponsoring SB421, a bill that would help ease the burden of paying for life-saving medications for children suffering from food allergies and diabetes.

The legislation requires health insurance plans to cover epinephrine auto-injectors at no cost and to cap supplies of insulin regardless of type and dosage to $50 per month.

The bill is sponsored by Senators Eddie Melton, Mark Stoops, and JD Ford and was introduced on January 15, 2020.
