As the move in the country is towards Single Payer Health Insurance, we the DIABETIC CONNECTCOUMINTIES need to educate the people to whom will be writing the legislation to control our coverage on what will be allowed, example in Vermont medicaid will only pay for 2 blood glucose test stripes a day. Until they realize one of best ways for proper treatment and also cut cost in the end result is Preventive Medicine.

just as the insurance companies: "Penny wise and pound foolish". I agree that we need to educate the legislators at the state and national level. Sounds like the supposed push for practicing preventive medicine which was promised with the passing of the new law march 2009 has gone the way of the Dodo bird.
