2020 T1International Out-of-Pocket Cost Survey
In 2016, T1International carried out our first global out of pocket cost survey for people with type 1 diabetes. We asked respondents to answer questions regarding insulin utilization, insulin delivery methods, and out-of-pocket costs for insulin, test strips and other diabetes management tools.
In 2018, we improved the survey, learning more the situation for people with type 1 diabetes around the world, and growing our response rate. The majority of the data can be viewed in the visualizations and graphics at the above links.
2020 was our third iteration of the survey, and we added additional questions about the impact of COVID-19, and focused on US rationing and healthcare coverage results as they compare to those of other countries. Results were published as a research paper in the Journal of Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice. Visualizations from the 2020 data can also be found below.
