I dont know if your insurance will cover them. Mine does as long as the doctor prescribes them. If not, I think Walmart is pretty reasonable. If you are eligible for medicare (sorry I dont know how old you are) I think people are able to get them home delivery and covered.

Good luck and I am sure you will get the hang of it all soon. There is a lot to learn and I know it can be overwhelming at first. There are some great people here at answering questions though.

Be well,
Pam

Hello and welcome aboard. You can buy the Relion meter at a Walmart store for $9, and a box of 50 strips for about $20. That is less than half the price of a name brand product. I have used the Relion meter and I think it is just as good as the more expensive meters.
