California will manufacture more affordable insulin in a partnership with nonprofit generic drugmaker Civica Rx, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Saturday during a visit to Southern California.
The partnership will provide insulin to Californians for $30 per 10 milliliters, the governor saidduring a stop at a Kaiser warehouse in Downey. The visit is part of a statewide tour to highlight policies — a road trip alternative to the governor’s traditional State of the State address.
NEW: California will be manufacturing some of America’s most affordable insulin.
The new CalRx insulin will be just $30.
It will be available to all Californians — and across the nation.
Next up: Manufacturing our own Naloxone.
