We just opened a letter from the insurance company notifying us that as of April 1 they will be limiting our monthly strip order to 200. My son is 8, very active in sports and typically tests 10-12 times a day. This new plan will limit him to testing 6 times a day! At our last appointment the doctor was very pleased with his A1c (6.8). She credited it due to his vigialance in checking his blood sugar throughout the day. Now the insurance company is wanting to limit the # of strips?? Is this common for other's insurance companies? I can't believe they want to discourage people from checking their blood sugar. Any advice?? By the way, we do not plan to let him know this information. We will buy strips at the store if needed. I appreciate your comments in advance.
