    • Many insurance plans have disaster overrides that allow you to replace your destroyed medicine for the cost of a co-pay. If you don’t have a disaster override, Lilly will provide you with a new 30-day supply at no charge. If you have a high deductible plan that normally requires you to pay the full price for you treatment, you’ll receive a 30-day supply at no charge if your medicine is destroyed.
