Generic Insulin???

  I have heard rumors that there will be a generic form of certain
  insulins available in the near future. I did some research. I did
 some research and found the  article below:

http://www.pmlive.com/pharma_news/mylan_to_develop_lantus,_humalog_and_novolog_generics_463683

  The article refers to Lantus as a fast acting insulin. That is NOT true!
  The article may not be credible! Maybe they meant Apidra, instead of
  Lantus. Apidra is a fast acting insulin.

  If generic insulins do eventually appear, what will it mean? Will our
 insurance require that we use generic? If so, will generic insulin
 work properly for everyone? I doubt it!
