Re: Testing Strips
I was using the Freestyle Lite meter but the test strips were around $1 each. My insurance company won't pay anything towards them up front. I had to pay, then send in paperwork and they would reimburse me some, but not much. I get the Diabetic magazine, and in one of their issues not too long ago they had a list of all the different meters and the cost and the cost of the test strips too. Wal-Mart's brand of meter and strips, ReliOn, are very inexpensive. I bought a new test meter for $9, and the strips are 50 for $20. I don't mind testing often like I'm supposed to, since the strips are so inexpensive.
