Juvenile Diabetes insulin and supplies

Postby angel_law » Fri Apr 17, 2009 11:49 am

We have a 17 year old that has type 1 diabetes and uses novolog pen and one touch ultra testing supplies. We have private insurance but they do not cover much of the supplies until we reach the $3000 deductible. The insulin alone is over $300 a month. We make too much to get state help but are going broke buying supplies. Most of the places I have inquired at we not help because we have some kind of insurance. Any suggestions to find help.

We will see what we can do to help you out.
We have many resources that are available out there that can help you. eBay is a great place to buy strips for less.
And I know that your teen age daughter would love to just use her pen but to be honest, it is cheaper to purchase the insulin adm pack, and insulin. There may be reasons you prefer the pens. Let me do some checking and see what i Can come up with.

If you have a bit of time then you might want to look through our subject area Diabetes and Disorders & Syndromes You Get Because Of It..

One assistance program for diabetics (that you definitely qualify for) is discussed at Reduced Cost Testing Supplies Program.

There are a number of ways to save discussed here: Specifics About Getting Free or Low Cost Diabetic Supplies.

Part of our "Mission Statement" says: "The National Library of Medicine states, "Physicians have always known that an informed patient who takes an active role is a 'better' patient
