Some of you know that I have been without insurance on my new job. This will be over in September, thank God!
Until then, my doctor has given me vials of insulin until I am able to afford my pump supplies again. But, he was unable to give me testing strips for my OneTouch Ultra Meter.
While looking for cheap/discount supplies on the internet this weekend, I ran across a site called www.healthwarehouse.com. Usually when I buy testing strips for my meter, they are roughly $1.00 per strip and I buy the retail packs that have 100 in the box. Testing at least 4 times a day - this gets expensive.
On the healthwarehouse.com website, I found a box of 50 strips for around $29.00 - so I ordered two of them and ended up getting 100 strips for about $60 - and they offer free ground shipping.
The site is very basic, but it serves its purpose. They even had insulin on there, though I didn’t look at prices and because I thought you had to have a prescription to buy insulin. But, the site is ranked by Amazon and some online pharmacy association, so it seems legit. They also had syringes and meters and other items.
Just an FYI in case you need cheaper supplies!
