I'm not 100% certain about this, but 7 years as DM2 has shown me that (in my case at least) the HbA1c test result corresponds to one's average BG reading (in mmol/L) over the past three months. A reading of 100 mg/dL corresponds to a reading of 5?5 mmol/L, so on the basis of the A1c result, it looks as if the One Touch result is indeed the accurate one.

As for the so-called "Accu-Chek", 125≡6?9 and 135≡7?5, both of which (as you say) are very worrying (the first is just under what is regarded in the UK as the maximum permissible, the second is well over the maximum), so I think you need to try to persuade your insurance company to support the One-Touch meter. Thank goodness we in the UK have state-provided health insurance...
