When I bought my Accu check meter, it came with a card that you activate that was supposed to make it so you would not pay more than $15 dollars for the test strips. I had activated it when I first got it, but hadn't had the opportunity to use it until today. Long story short, the pharmacist wasn't sure about what it was, but she punched the numbers in through my regular insurance and after waiting for about ten minutes, she got all excited and gave me the thumbs up sign. She then says to me..it actually worked!! lol So instead of having to pay almost 130 dollars for two bottles of test strips, they cost me the actual $15 dollars just like it said it would. She said as long as I had a prescription on file and it wasn't expired etc. I could keep getting my test strips for that cost. I felt like I had won the lotto! I told my husband, who doesn't have an accu check meter to get our doctor to give him and RX for one next time he goes in so he can get the card as well. I can't believe how expensive those tiny strips are.
