West Allis, WI
Saskia has been a Type I Diabetic for the past 18 years and relies on taking two types of insulin every single day to stay alive. One vial of each type of insulin costs over $200, and Saskia uses upwards of four vials of each type of insulin every month. The monthly price of one of her medications is nearly $1,500. Though Saskia has insurance through her employer, it does not cover the full cost of her medications, so a large portion of her paycheck goes to covering the medications she needs to stay healthy.
