Test Strip Insurance Question


I’ve been having trouble paying the copay for my one touch test strips. If i get a store brand meter (I’m looking at CVS TrueTest), will insurance charge me the generic copay, or will I be stuck with the name brand copay?

If it depends on the insurance policy, how can I find out?

I really appreciate the help. The CGM sensors have made me a little empty in the pockets…


You have to call your insurance company and see how much they will cover. Most will cover only certain brands. The Walmart Relion is the cheapest. I think the strips are $39 for 100. My insurance doesn’t cover my strips so I buy all mine on Amazon.

I would check with the insurance company, my insurance will only cover certain ones–PERIOD. If they are not on that list they don’t pay anything for them.
