I've never had issues with amount of insulin, past dealing with one really stupid person at Walgreens who questioned how much I "needed".. it was actually my insurance who fixed that one for me.. they've never denied any amount. While I was using Apidra they did keep sending me letters encouraging me to switch to something with a cheaper co-pay.
My insurance does limit test strips.. I am only "allowed" 300 a month.. but that works out to every 24 days.
I've never gotten a glucometer with an RX, so I can't help you there.. apart from the Aviva I bought recently when my lancing thing broke (I bought the meter to get the multiclix) I haven't even bought one retail in probably 8 years.
