I was wondering how many test strips your doc writes for and if your insurance pays for it. I have Medco prescription coverage. Now that I am back in the U.S. I went to see my doctor and let him know that as a LADA I am using a minimum of 8 strips a day. He was fine for that but was unsure if my insurance would pay for it. He wrote my 90 day prescription for 600 and when I pointed out that eight a day would be 720 and that is the minimum number I used he said that he thought even the 600 would be pushing it with the insurance, and they would probably turn it down.
Surprise! Yesterday in the mail 600 test strips arrived. (for which I was charged $25) Wow! In Guatemala I had to pay $39 for 50 strips and alternated these with the 100 at a shot my doctor had previously ordered on mail away. What a great feeling, to finally have a plentitude of test strips! But I’m aware it’s still not as many as I actually use. So how many do you get covered? Anyone with Medco?
