I just received a letter from Harvard Pilgrim saying that all test strips that aren't made from Abbott will be raised to a tier 3 drug price. So instead of $25 month it will be $40. I find this so discouraging and frustrating!
I called them and explained that have an Animas pump and my meter is paired with my pump. They said I can get my test strips pre-authorized from my doctor. One rep from Harvard Pilgrim said that I can get them pre-authorized and still pay tier 2 price but I talked with someone else and he said I could get them approved but still pay the increased price.
Then I got a freestyle light meter in the mail yesterday from harvard Pilgrim! I feel outraged that I am now being screwed because they made a deal with Abbott.
Has this happened to anyone else?
