Like "I too have had no insurance and I have not found ANY assistance programs for test strips. I have found strips on E-bay very cheap. Even now with insurance my strips cost $45-50. I have Medicare and they will only pay for 3 tests a day. My Dr. wants me to start meal time insulin, but don't know how to pay for more strips. Test strips are the most expensive part of my Diabetes care. We need to get together and start lobbying for assistance or price controls on them"
