State Health Insurance Programs


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.

Not all states have major medical risk pools.  If you do not see your state listed here, you should still contact your state insurance commissioner to see if a program has been added or is being developed.  See our list below on how to contact your state's medical health insurance agency, or use the pull down menu to visit your state's government information page on Islets of Hope.
