Cal­i­for­nia to man­u­fac­ture and pro­duce its own in­sulin as Con­gress de­bates $35 month­ly cap

As the Sen­ate de­bates cap­ping out-of-pock­et in­sulin costs at $35 per month, Cal­i­for­nia is mov­ing for­ward with its plans to take mat­ters in­to its own hands.

Gov. Gavin New­som set aside $100 mil­lion in the state bud­get for the man­u­fac­ture of its in­sulin, with the hopes of mak­ing it more af­ford­able for res­i­dents of the state. Ac­cord­ing to the bud­get, the in­sulin that will even­tu­al­ly be de­vel­oped and man­u­fac­tured will be a low-cost biosim­i­lar in­sulin prod­uct.
