I was reading an article about the state of Oregon and their efforts to limit type 2's on Medicaid to one test strip a week. http://www.diatribe.org/issues/59/new-now-next/9 WHAT? That is just nuts. How can you know what is going on inside if that is all that's covered? Now, I am speaking as an uninsured person, and I pay for all of my test strips out of pocket. But I do make money. People on fixed incomes who cannot afford the extra are going to be hard hit if this takes affect. And if you have an A1c below 8 (that is not even a well managed number) they would not be allowed any strips under this consideration.
How can we be going so far backwards? This was shocking to me. How does your state do for offering you coverage of your testing supplies?
