Georgia - State Insurance and Assistance Programs for Persons with Diabetes
Hock's offers 30-50% discounted prices on diabetes supplies. We cannot specifically recommend or endorse any company but we have been listing Hock's in our resource directory for over a year as one of the two cheapest online companies to purchase from. We recently affiliated with Hock's because our own experience with them has been so positive. If you do place an order through our site, they will contribute financially towards our cause and you will get reasonable prices for diabetes supplies.
The state of Georgia does not have a state-run, high-risk insurance pool, however, you may still be eligible for HIPPA coverage if you had group insurance and recently lost it. Read more information about HIPPA. The state does, however, have mandated diabetes care coverage (for those who have insurance). Read more information about insurance laws in Georgia.
