As of June 26, 2018, the #TreatType2 program has ended. We’re proud to have provided patients with a year of free diabetes medications. We hope to offer similar programs in the future. In the meantime, you can still get metformin, glipizide and pioglitazone at the guaranteed lowest prices with Blink. If you’ve previously signed up for free medication through #TreatType2, please refer to our help center or call us at 1 (844) 265 - 6444 for information.

Our Commitment

Blink Health is a free service on a mission to lower prescription drug prices for all Americans. Blink’s free website and mobile app offer savings on over 15,000 different medications.

We think there is no better way to show our commitment to our mission than to invest in programs that will directly help Americans afford the life-saving medications they need.

Too many Americans cannot afford their common diabetes medications, so this summer Blink Health is giving them away for free.

The #TreatType2 program is designed to help the greatest number of people living with diabetes by giving away the three most commonly prescribed medications. Patients with a prescription for any or all of these three medications can receive their Rx for free, for a year.

For Providers

If you have patients who take diabetes medications, you can help them save with Blink. Request a free #TreatType2 kit for your office today.

Anyone with a prescription for any or all of these three medications (metformin, glipizide and pioglitazone) can receive their Rx for free, for a year. Blink works regardless of prescription drug coverage. A credit or debit card is required to establish an account, but there will be no charges for these medications for a year.

The #TreatType2 program includes the most commonly prescribed dosages for metformin, glipizide and pioglitazone including: metformin hcl 500 mg tablet, metformin hcl 850 mg tablet, metformin hcl 1000 mg tablet, glipizide 5 mg tablet, glipizide 10 mg tablet, pioglitazone hcl 15 mg tablet, pioglitazone hcl 30 mg tablet, pioglitazone hcl 45 mg tablet
Please note that extended release dosages of metformin and glipizide are not included in the program.

How do I get my medication?

You pick up your medication at your local pharmacy. Local pharmacies serving every community accept Blink Health, including most major chain locations in every state: Walmart, Albertsons, Kroger and many more. Blink is also accepted at almost every independent pharmacy. CVS and Walgreens pharmacies are not in the Blink Health network.

What if I already use Blink to get my diabetes medication at a discount – can I sign up for this program?

Yes, we are extending the offer to include existing Blink Health users.

Roche Diabetes Care Program

Diabetes management can be expensive, Blink Health is working to fix that. We've teamed up with Roche Diabetes Care to provide all Blink users with a free Accu-Chek Guide meter, plus savings on all Accu-Chek lancets and test strips.

Insulin Patient Access Program

Blink Health is also working on solutions to lower the price of insulin. Earlier this year, Blink announced a first-of-its-kind access program with Eli Lilly to offer a 40 percent discount on Lilly insulins, including Humalog, one of the most widely prescribed branded insulin medications.
