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.

Illinois Department of Human Services offers the Home-Based Support Services Program, which tailors services to help adults with eligible disabilities live at home. The program pays for services to help enrolled adults (age 18 or older) become more independent living on their own or with their families. Participating adults are entitled to services worth approximately $17,000 to $19,000 per year. They also offer the Family Assistance Program, which pays a monthly cash stipend to help with the costs of caring for an eligible child (age 17 or younger) with a severe mental disability. Participating families receive approximately $5,000 to $7,000 yearly.

Funds are typically appropriated for the program during the spring session of the General Assembly. If funding is sufficient to allow enrollment of additional persons, new persons are selected by a random drawing during the summer. If such a drawing is held in a given year, families and individuals whose applications are received by May 31 of that year are eligible for the random drawing. To learn more, call (800) 843-6154, ext. 3.
