Dee, were you able to purchase the strips , including the free meter ?? I received a brochure in the mail this past week ...and learned, that Pharmacies are not interested in carrying this product???

Hi there:

I'm looking at getting this meter and strips for the volunteer Seniors testing program that we have. May I know more about the Brochure you have regarding the pharmacies not wanting to carry this product? Does it say why they don't want to carry it? Is it an accuracy concern?


bubbab I did not keep the brochure and don't recall anything either about the details .You may want to connect with Dee , the original poster ???
I asked my GP today to supply me with a yearly script as is required by my Extended Health provider ( PBC ) and was surprised to read the last Safeway Pharmacy receipt ( Nov 12 , 2013 ) , that for 400 strips Bayer Contour the bill was $ 211.52 ...that's approx $ 53,00 for 100(total paid for by BC Pharmacare ) ..these strips used to be close to $ 80,00 for 100 ??!! And Welcome to TuD.org


Thanks kindly for the response and for the welcome. It's not a big deal, just that I've never seen a brochure stating that Pharmacies didn't want to carry a product. So to be clear, I'm not a person living with Diabetes. My part of this, as a volunteer, I go to several patients, either hanidcapped in some way or seniors that are timid about testing themselves and I do the home testing and take them for Dr. appointments and consults.

In cases where they have coverage, we use their supplies, but in cases where they do not, and they are financially challenged, we cover the cost of supplies through our local foundation. So in that vane, cost is always an issue. BUT of course we don;t want to complimise accuracy especially in the cases of Type 1 Insulin Dependancy.

As a matter of fact, one of my wonderful people that I test, Donnie, permitted (wanted) his picture to be used as my file picture and he's round that it's here. He can;t use a computer but we keep him in the loop with all sorts of print outs.

Anyway, just a little more about me, and our cause. I'm also glad to hear that Bayer has better pricing now. It's causes me grief to know all of the people living with Diabetes that do not test enough becuase of the out of pocket expenses. I just don't understand it. JUst make a a reasonable profit on products, price them all the same and let the product merits stand alone. Guess I'm a day dreamer.
