Don’t throw your unopened boxes of diabetic test strips away before exploring the possibility of selling them to someone who resells them at a discount to others that need them. This is a way for you to recover some money, while helping those without insurance to get their medical supplies.
Cash Paid for Diabetic Test Strips: Diabetic test strips are quite expensive, as diabetics who use them surely know. They have expirations dates, too, which means you have to use them up by the appropriate dates or toss them in the trash. Sometimes strips are on sale but even if you can afford to buy some, they won’t do any good unless they are specific to the exact model glucose monitor that you use. It doesn’t do any good to buy strips on sale no matter how good the price if they won’t work properly with your unit. You could get a false reading and certainly isn’t good if you monitor and administer insulin to regulate blood sugar.
What if you’ve purchased lots of test strips and they aren’t appropriate for your glucose monitor? What can you do if your doctor suggests a change in monitor type or model and the boxes of strips aren’t going to work with the new unit? Perhaps a loved one has been taken to live in a nursing care facility and they provide the strips, though he still has several boxes left at home going unused.
You can sell those unused strips to someone who resells them to others looking for a cheaper way to manage their diabetes. If the boxes of strips are full, unopened boxes and are still within their expiration date time period, they can be resold. Sell as many boxes as you have that are going to waste in a cabinet, while others who need them can buy them at a discount and help to spare their medical supply budget.
There are a few restrictions in place that make the sale of diabetic test strips an illegal act. One is the sale of strips that have acquired through theft or robbery of the real owners. It is also illegal to sell diabetic test strips that have been purchased through a government assistance program such as Medicare.
In most cases, the shipping for the strips will be paid for by the buyer, so you won’t be out any money up front if you should decide to sell some of them. If you have pre-brought test strips to work with a monitor and you need to purchase a different monitor before you have used up all of your current test strips, it’s perfectly legal to sell the excess.
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.
