Type 1 Diabetes Patient

A young uninsured, unemployed man in his 20’s with Type 1 diabetes presented himself at one of the emergency departments (ED). He was out of insulin, and didn’t have the financial ability to purchase any. While at the ED, his mother saw the brochure for PDAN and called from the ED waiting room. He had been hospitalized twice in the past two years secondary to not having access to his insulin. A PDAN coordinator saw him that afternoon and completed the needed applications to get his insulin’s for free. He is now employed fulltime and has employer sponsored insurance.
