I was just reading a great article from Joslin about the changes made to Medicare this summer. (You can read it here as well: http://blog.joslin.org/2013/09/joslin-reacts-...).
The Joslin folks point out some concerns about how these changes will impact patients. And it got me wondering how people here in Diabetic Connect have been effected. So if you're on Medicare, what changes have you seen?
Did you have to change suppliers for your test strips?
Did you have to switch meters? And if so, which meter did you have to switch to?
Did anyone decide to pay out of pocket to stay with a meter or supplier they liked better?
For those who have switched suppliers, what has your experience been?
Were you confused by the changes or were they communicated well beforehand?
We'd love to hear what you're dealing with. And perhaps there are things we could share with each other to make it easier for all of us.
