Sort of a vent and some information for others in the area...
I just got info from my insurance company..As of 10/1/09 they will no longer cover One Touch or AccuCheck meter's and test strips!
They included vouchers for a new meter from their preferred brands...Bayer and Abbott...which is fine, I guess...but I have NEVER liked Abbott meters and have never used a Bayer meter.
But this means I'll no longer be able to use my OneTouch Ultra Link?! UGH, I am extremely frustrated. One Touch, has for a very long time, been the most preferred brand by insurance companies! What the heck happened?!
And my larger frustration is that we have to fight at every turn to make choices regarding our care and now they are taking them away!!
