I think Insurance like Liberty or Medicare should pay for everything instead of us having to do it talk about UNFAIR !!!!!!!!!!!

United Healthcare sent me a letter they are no longer paying for Freestyle Lite strips if I buy them from a local pharmacy. They will pay a small portion if I order a 3 month supply from a mail order pharmacy. They are trying to get diabetic patients to switch to One Touch or Accu-check. They will pick up more of the costs for those strips. I was contacted recently by an online pharmacy and they negotiated with United Healthcare to supply Accu-check strips for $5 a month. I went with them. They are also supplying me with lancets for $1 a month.
