Is Lifescan taking us to the Cleaners?
YES , as are All the others..
60 Min TV Show and Another On PBS with Alan Alda done a Few yrs ago..
Showing how The Big Pharma keep RENEWING their Patents to keep them active and not Expire
They are supposed to Expire every 7-10 yrs and then allow Generic's to make them..
BUT, Light at End of the Tunnel? OBAMA Care or our new NHCP that will Bring alot of this Corruption to Light and add alot more Pressure to covert Test strips to Generic
While Self Insured my 1st 10 yrs., I've been getting mine thru CANADA for yrs.. ! costing 0.25 cents each..$12.50 per 50 and $25 per 100
Ck what they are Now...
and Insurance Co.'s? Pay upto -75% Less than OTC prices! Gee, I wonder why?
BTW- Relion and Precision Test Meters and Strips? R the Same too !
$20 per 50 Relion strips..! Meter is only $10..
and That is just ONE Reason Big Pharma Doesn't want OBAMA CARE! They will have to Stop Ripping off Americans, like they have to in other Countries with a National Health Ins. Plan ...
Abbot will Complain that they will have to Lay off Thousands ! Since they won't be able to get the outrageous Prices they have over the yrs from Americans..!
Ever Been By ABBOT PARK in N. Illinois! and you will see what Those Over Priced Products they Sell has provided them ... But, they have provided Thousands of Jobs!
