Medtronic Access Programs

 

It’s been 100 years since the discovery of insulin, yet millions of people with diabetes around the world still cannot access the care they need. Medtronic is working to engineer the extraordinary for people throughout their diabetes journey. While some are benefiting from diabetes technology, too many are not, due to cost and access. To help, we created  a group of programs for eligible U.S. customers facing financial difficulty from the loss of a job or inadequate/loss of insurance coverage. Join us as we increase awareness of the inequities that exist and take steps towards ensuring everyone has access to technology. 

Below are programs that may help reduce the cost of insulin pumps, continuous glucose monitoring (CGM), smart insulin pens and ongoing supplies. Not sure which program is best for you? To learn more or check if you are eligible, click the links for any of our programs to fill out an interest form or to find a direct number for the individual program.
