Well unfortunately I have already contacted mini med and one touch to no avail.
Here is the story I got. Basically one touch is not manufacturing or distributing the new meter. It is an all minimed program. I understand it may be a first where meter distribution is separated from strips. I understand that minimed does not at this time intend to sell or “pass out” these meters to anyone except the original pump allotment of one meter per pumper. (Hence my question) I understand that one touch never intends to sell them or pass them out. Likely if someone has one they are not using they will be somewhat valuable for at least a year.
Minmed suggest that when they start selling them, the retail price will be about $180 - $200 with no discounts ever applied. Form my standpoint it is a wonderful meter and good replacement for the prior meter, but darn, that is expensive. Hopefully this doesn’t mark the start of seperating meters form strip manufactures.
PS thanks for the replies. !!!
