How do you pay for your diabetes supplies?

Poll dates: June 12 - 19, 2005
Total Votes: 475

In the United States, most people who have insurance coverage get it through their employer. Three-quarters of our readers fall into that category. Even with employer-provided health insurance, the amount of coverage and the types of diabetes supplies that are covered varies widely.

Families in the United States without health insurance can enroll in Together Rx Access to save money on diabetes supplies, including OneTouch Ultra and UltraSmart systems and test strips; FreeStyle and Flash systems and test strips; Precision Xtra systems, blood glucose test strips, and ketone test strips; and Lantus.
