Like "Before I rec'd the State/county insurance, I had to pay for my strips. Now that I have that insurance, I pay $10.00 for a pack of 5 disc's(50 strips). The problem I have is that I test twice a day and that means I only have strips for 25 days: I have had to buy extra to tide me over; the good news is that my local pharmacy has a box of 10 disc's for $51.00 and that gives me a lot of extra for those times when I next to text extra."
