I’ve been using a Contour meter for a while now because it came out on top in a test of accuracy that I saw. My insurance has sent me a letter notifying me that, as of 2019, I will only be able to get Accu-check strips.
I’m assuming that I could probably appeal and ask for an exemption from the Accu-check only rule. I don’t know if I would succeed, but I could try.
Do you think it’s worth my putting in the time to try to get the insurance to pay for Contour strips or is the difference in accuracy (if any) not really great enough for it to be worth making a stink?
I can’t remember where I saw the meter accuracy comparison which crowned Contour the champ, but it was done a couple years ago, so there may be more recent comparisons.
