I recently discovered after a very expensive medical year for myself that I’d spent several thousand dollars on medical that I’d not met my deductible. (I’d spent about 4 times my deductuble, but hadn’t met it). The reason: my test strips and insulin don’t count towards my deductible.
In short I’m looking for some generic meters and generic test strips that I could buy over the counter. Currently I’m paying just shy of $600 for 3 months of insulin and a bit over $400 for 3 months of test strips. There’s a few things I’ve heard about, but wanted to know if the community has found better options. I would update this first post with any links that are posted. I’ve never used any of these so I can’t vouch for quality, performance,durability, etc
Has anyone been able to strike a deal with their insurance to make an exception for generic meters or test strips even through they are not covered by their plan?
Here’s what has been found:
