Call ahead to ensure availability
To save yourself from unnecessary trips, call ahead to your pharmacy to confirm they have U-500 KwikPen® or U-500 insulin vial and BD™ U-500 Insulin Syringes (in the quantity you need) in stock. If not, they can order them for you. Once ordered, it typically takes 1 to 2 business days for the pharmacy to receive the medication and syringes.
If you are using the vial and syringe, be sure to take both your prescriptions for the U-500 insulin vial and U-500 syringes with you to the pharmacy.
Take your savings card
If eligible, activate your savings card and take it to the pharmacy to ensure that you pay as little as $25 for your insulin prescription (not including syringes).* Call 1-866-923-1953 if you have any savings card questions.
