I have a lot of Medicare patients who only test once a day (because that is what the doctor prescribes; And we all know that is not enough testing. On top of that, some patients have their once a day results are above 200. I have been told Medicare will not pay for test strips more than once a day unless the patient is on insulin. My patients can not afford to buy them on their own. So my question is how do I get Medicare and/or their doctor to approve more testing without making the patient take insulin. Any advice would help.
