I’ve constantly been turned down by medicare for test strips. They stated I was denied because there was no equipment on file that uses test strips.
I got my doctor to prescribe a glucose meter from Walgreens. They didn’t charge for it, but it gave me documentation that I had a glucose meter.
I disputed the charge. I just received the results from the dispute saying that Medicare doesn’t cover test strips.
I just downloaded the medicare bulletin that states they do cover test strips. I guess I need to dispute the dispute.
I’m sure you have had similar frustrations with Medicare. It bad enough to have to deal with type 1 diabetes. It far more frustrating when you have to deal with Medicare too.
