Diabetes Testing Supplies

blue-blood-sugar-monitorMost of us get our diabetes testing supplies by prescription from a physician supported by our healthcare insurance provider. We take our prescription to the pharmacy and usually pay a co-pay for the supplies we need. At the time of this writing, I know of only one healthcare provider—Kaiser Permanente—that provides meters, test strips, and lancets with $0 co-pay. Below are some popular suppliers of diabetes testing supplies (as well as other medical supplies).
