I get all my meds and insulin at walmart still but found an online store that is nearly half for glucose testing strips and lancets. My husband and I preorder a 3 month supply and they come every month. It has been such a relief on the finances - pm me if you need any advice on where to go.

If you don't have insurance you might check out InclusiveHealth.org. I heard about it recently and it costs less than half of what Blue Cross wanted to charge me monthly if I didn't have health insurance. Fortunately I have good health insurance now but wanted to share this with the group. Have no idea if it's restricted to NC or not. I had a potentially great job offer where the company didn't have employer sponsored health insurance but fortunately I didn't have to make the choice after all.

If you live in California, I would check out this site for health insurance.

I have had T1 for 17 yrs too and I don't have insurance. I live in NJ but here we have a thing called charity care. I receive free insulin, test strips, and syringes but bc it IS a clinic you have 5 mins with the Dr. Please look into this... it is the ONLY thing keeping me alive!

I have been a diabetic for two years. Type 2

Hi, I'm new here. I've been a type 1 diabetic for about 17 years. I am at this point in my life, w/out a job and insurance. Luckily i get my insulin thru the pharmaceutical companys. The hardest part is the test strips. I go to walmart and get reli on strips cuz they're cheap but sometimes i go w/out and i use needles more than 1 time. my kids are grown and i'm not disabled so in my county and state (clermont county, Ohio) i dont qualify for medicaid. it just doesnt make sense. testing is soooooo important. Does anyone have any info or ideas on what to do about this? This economy isnt getting any better in my opinion. i'm broke.
