This is a something that is a very concern of mine - the cost of testing supplies.
I've been unemployed for 26 months and thusly have no health insurance.
Thankfully, through programs run by the drug companies I'm able to get all my meds at low or no cost. However - this does not apply to my diabetic testing supplies. All the companies I've contacted tell me they have no such programs for these supplies, even if they (Abbott, for example) do have programs for their regular meds.
I test 6 to 8 times a day (doctors orders) and that runs almost $250.00 per month just for text strips. Does anyone know of any companies out there that offer plans?
