    Cost of insulin

    I got a new job and they said they would have benefits on the first day. Went to go refill my prescription 2 bottles of Lantus and 2 bottles of Humalog and the price was almost $1240, for both prescriptions so about $620 for each one they were pretty close to the same amount and this is a one month supply. So I had to find $1240 to get my prescription and the insurance company would mail me a check for the amount. Why are the prices so high?
