I recently started on the Freestyle Promise program, where you can get up to $50 off, per month, the cost of your freestyle testing strips. I recently refilled my 3-mo order, which amounted to 1000 strips (11 tests/day). If those cost $1/strip (I’m being generous here), the total cost of those would be $1000. With the $150 savings ($50/mo. times 3 months), I would have saved 15% alone! .
But wait!! There’s more (apologies to Billy Mays…)
My insurance covered the bulk of the original cost. After insurance, my test strips cost was about $155. The Freestyle Promise program kicked in and covered the next $138, leaving me with a net bill of…
$17… (I’m not sure if it was my pharmacist or me who was more shocked) For $1000 worth of test strips… That’s $0.02 per test strip!! Egads! Why didn’t I join this program sooner?!
The program is free to join and here’s the website:
