One insulin maker is trying to alleviate the financial strain that people are experiencing due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Pharmaceutical company Novo Nordisk announced on Tuesday that it will offer insulin free of charge for 90 days to diabetes patients who lost health insurance coverage because they lost their jobs.

“Patients have enough issues to worry about at this moment,” Doug Langa, executive vice president of North America operations and president of Novo Nordisk, said in a statement. “We don’t want being able to pay for their insulin to be one of them.”

The benefit is offered through the company’s diabetes patient assistance program. Eligible patients must provide documentation that shows they have lost health-care coverage or that they are being offered Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) benefits. Those who can’t quickly access the required documentation can take advantage of the company’s immediate supply option, Novo Nordisk said in a news release.
