“If you use diabetic test strips and aren’t covered by insurance, buy test strips that have been resold.”
Diabetes Tips – Cash for Diabetic Test Strips: If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, either Type I or Type II, you will have to keep a supply of items to use for testing your glucose levels in the blood. If you are under 65 and not eligible for Medicare and you have no medical insurance, these supplies can be quite expensive.
Health insurance companies in the private sector do not have to cover you if you have a pre-existing condition. If you take out health insurance after you have been diagnosed, you will not be covered in most cases. This is a standard procedure with medical insurance companies to avoid having people remain uninsured until something goes wrong. It’s best to get medical insurance when you can instead of waiting, as it is perfectly legal for you to be excluded from their coverage for a condition you already have when you apply for the insurance.
In many states this is illegal, but in most it is legal, which will leave you uncovered if you have not obtained insurance before you are diagnosed with a major illness or condition like diabetes. If you are not covered you will have to purchase your own equipment and supplies.
The blood glucose monitors are not necessarily expensive, but the test strips are. They must be used several times per day in some cases. You must use a fresh, sealed, and not outdated strip every time you test yourself to get an accurate reading. While the strips look the same, you must also be sure that the ones you use are designed for your specific monitor brand and type. You can’t vary from this as you will be given a reading that doesn’t reflect your true blood glucose levels.
Test strips are available through internet websites that resell them. Most of these are perfectly safe to use and are legitimate. Look online because they are very inexpensive compared to those you would buy retail. They are collected from people who no longer need them for any reason. They may have passed away or gone to a nursing care facility where the supplies are kept there and are administered through the living center.
These strips are a great deal if you have trouble affording them. They are sealed, still within their use date, and you can buy the exact type you need for your type monitor. The cost is a fraction of what retail strips cost.
You may find yourself having extra strips frequently or occasionally. There are many reasons people have extra strips including the doctor changing your machine, testing yourself less frequently, a loved one goes into a nursing home that provides the test strips for them…and many more.
