ARGH!!! Why can't insurance companies get on the damn boat and realize that living with diabetes is annoying enough. They really don't need to add extra crap! DH just got a new job FOR THE INSURANCE COMPANY and now I guess I'm going to have to change all of my meters. My freakin pump comes with a built in meter that takes ALL the work out of correcting my blood sugar. You'd think that the isurance company would love this, right? NOOoooooooOOOOOOOoo. I can't use the strips that that meter takes (well I can, but I will have to spend approx the GNP of a small Latin American Country on copays for them).....ARGH!!
To top it off, I'd bet good money that the only test strips that are on the "cheap" prescription list (if $50 can be called "cheap")will be the basic ones and so help me, I am NOT going back to the basic "it needs more blood then the Red Cross takes during a donation" model....Nope sorry, looks like I'm gonna have to figure out that GNP and which country it is, cause I'm gonna be forking over big time!!
