Does anyone have keystone health plan east- I had issues getting new test strips from my insurance company, I have to get a whole new monitor and strips for the insurance to cover it, they will not cover my one touch ultra that currently have. They are switching me to a contour- hope fully it works as good as mine I can hook mine up to my computer and download all my numbers I hope this new one is capable of doing this. Anyone have any ideas how to fight this?

My insurance did the same thing. Last year it didn't matter to them which meter I used. This year I had to go with the contour one touch. It seems good to me. I don't have any extra money, so have not bought the add on to connect to the computer.

I suspect the ins co got a "deal" on the meters and to get the deal they had to shut the others out. OP, someone in the Ins co. got paid off to make their meter their exclusive metering system.

As far as how to fight it? No ideas.

You are as skeptical as I am James. But the reality of big business is the bottom line, after all.

Yes, I am no Pollyanna! (My plumbing is all wrong for that, LoL!) Yep and you're right graylin, everyone is trying to make a living. But what bothers me is when companies try to make a "killing" financially.
