My prescription for a three month supply of one touch strips is $87. My local pharmacy (Publix supermarkets) has a generic brand meter for a $15 copay, one month supply. This is a third of what I’m paying now! But when I asked my pharmacist about it, she told me that brand wasn’t very accurate and I was better off with one touch.
But I’m curious to hear from people who actually use generic brand testing supplies from places like Publix. Do you find that the accuracy is that far off? Is the cost savings worth it?
I’m trying to cut costs wherever I can so I can afford to keep buying my omnipod supplies.
