We have fallen victim to the test strip problem...our insurance changed the tier of the strips we have been using, so instead of $15, we will have to pay $45. . (Not so affordable now are ya, aca? But I digress.) Our options are accuchek and one touch. We have only used the one touch ultra blue, and we know we don't want to go back to that. He's open to the verio. We don't know much about accuchek and the extent of his experience with the verio is about 3-4 days at diabetes camp. For those who have used both: How does accuchek compare to the Verio strips? Does either company have a good discount plan? How do they compare with accuracy and reliability? What do you prefer? Do they have supply issues? Which meter do you like best? I will be researching this, but any experience or suggestions are appreciated! Thanks in advance!
