Hi no this is NOT normal for a "free" meter. I've received free meters and they only needed my name and address . NOT my insurance information. Be careful it sounds like to me the "free" meter is trying to bill your insurance! Free is free no strings attached! So don't go with any free item that wants your insurance information! There are plenty of truely free offers out there! ! Go with the truely free meter! They usually send them out very fast and theirs no insurance questions!

God for you. There are scams going on where people will call and ask for information like that and if you don't know them and we all know it wasn't DC that called do not give them anything.

I've been here for nearly 3 years. So that in itself tells you something about the site. If an internet site doesn't grab me, or is serving one of my needs I am GONE!

I ditto what VickieF sid about giving them NO information.

On your profile thate are 5 "friends" already One of those friends is John Crowley. click on his profile and send him a message and tell him about the person who is doing this. He will try to find out what is going on, and if you want it to stop will try to put a stop to it.

BTW WELCOME to Diabetic connect!

If this a FREE meter, what do they need your ins.ID number? sounds like an identity theif trying to get money from you. May have nothing to do with DC
