Hi Michael,

Are you talking about Roche's Patient Assistance Program. If not, you should definitely look into it.

Thank you, too, for the comments. They will be passed along as well.

Have a good evening,

Hello All,
I LOVE my Compact Plus!! I agree with the noise it makes, but I can handle that for the convenience of the all-in-one design!! I use a FreeStyle Freedom Lite, but do not like messing with the strips and lancing device!
And I do not mind paying for my strips(I have no Insurance)!! Trying to get on the Patient Assistance Program, but it is taking some time to do that.
All in all the Compact Plus is Awesome!! But it could use a make-over. Maybe a bit more streamlined!!

Thanks, Rob. So far, my only complaint is that the Compact Plus is LOUD! I do lots of middle-of-the-night testing (check out my blog for more on that craziness), and this meter seems to echo throughout my bedroom. But, it's a small price to pay for the convenience of not fumbling around with strips. That's my #1 feature, followed by the attached lancet device (I'm always dropping them, so this is a great improvement), and the lighted display. It's a very nice design, and since I use a pump and CGM, its lack of a lot of bells and whistles actually works really well for me.
It is annoying that the strips fall into my insurance's (Aetna) highest copay level, but I'm willing to pay an extra $15 per month for something I like better.

The others here could probably provide much better input about tips and tricks, but please feel free to shoot me a message letting me know of your experience and learning curve. If there's any way we can make it easier, or you have any suggestions, we'd love to hear them.

Thanks so much,

Thanks for the feedback. I am passing your comments along to the appropriate people here at Roche. We really do appreciate your input and support. Is it okay for me to contact you here at TuDiabetes if I get asked a specific question about your comments?

Have a good day,

What I would like to see in a new design of a glucose monitor. Small, allow me to enter as much info in the meter, carb counting calculations counting and exercise, medication. A PWD with MDI do not have the conveniences as a person with a pump would have. I do not want to log on paper, i do not want to constantly have to download into a computer. I would only want to download when it is time for an appointment or a major adjustment that may be needed). So go to your designer and call me when you have something that would be truly helpful in my self management. I am a true blue Accu check Meter user and currently have been using the Accucheck aviva for years. I would like to see Roche come out of the computer stone ages using the the current strips. I only want the conveniences to help me with self management.

I'm getting my new Accu-Check Compact Plus today! I've been using One Touch for years, but I'm tired of wasting strips. Any tips or tricks that I should know about?
Comment by Fabrizio on September 11, 2009 at 1:20am
Hi to all.
Have you see new model Accu-chek Mobile? Very fashion.
It's similar to Compact Plus with new soft-clik with 6 lancets.
Take a look at
I'm waiting your opinion about new model; I will test new model as soon as will arrive me from germany.
Comment by Rob Muller, Roche Diabetes Care on August 28, 2009 at 5:54am
Good Morning, Gerry. Thanks for the welcome.
No update as of now, I'm sorry. As you may know, we delayed the launch to look into the possibility of improving the product. Other than that, I can't comment becuase we do not have FDA approval yet.
Believe me, when there is news I can share, this group may be among the first to hear it.
