3 tests/day limit in Kansas too I went to CVS to pick up my test strip prescription yesterday and was told that "because of the new healthcare laws you are only allowed 3 strips per day." Huh? I thought the affordable healthcare laws were there to lower the cost for the patients, not the insurance companies. I am so angry about this I can barely type coherently. How can they think this is right? Limiting the amount of times someone with type 1 can test to 3! That is a death wish. How am I suppose to know how much to bolus before meals, or how am i supposed to know if I need a correction bolus, and what happens when I get an error code.... This is the worst thing you can do to a person with type 1, take their test strips away, I mean do these people even have a heart? Sorry for that rant, but I am very upset over this new "law" or whatever it is. My pharmacist told me to call my doctor and have them do a pre authorization and then the insurance company may pay for the test strips after that. As if the prescription the doctor wrote wasn't good enough. They told me it could take up to 2-3 weeks for the preauthorization to go through. So in the meantime I am having to by my strips at Glucomart.com again (its like deja vu of when I didn't have insurance). I thought about going to a local news station and telling them to broadcast it so people know how the healthcare changes are actually affecting people....and how they are helping the insurance companies get even richer.
