Everyone’s been commenting I should talk to my insurance provider, so I
thought I’d clarify here - I’m Canadian, and I don’t have any insurance
right now beyound the basic health care. So all my doctors visits
and lab tests are covered, but not my meter, strip or meds. Only
the meds are on prescription.

I really do need to look into additional health care. I know there are
programs out there to add to the basic Alberta Health Care, but I’ll
need to be sure that it’s actually saving me money.
