Thanks for doing this.  I did not understand what you were talking about in the original post re pinning this.  I still don't know what that means.  But, this sure will be useful.  The Freestyle program will save me a lot of money since I have no insurance coverage.   My employer simply cannot afford it.

Ron when a post is "pinned" it stays at the top and doesn't disappear off the page.

I'm really happy that people are already benefiting from the links.

Thank you so much for posting this.  Any resources for Lantus users, this seems to be a tough one to find.  Thanks again !

Hi again, I just responded to your post on Recently Diagnosed.

I'm just starting to build that post, but your request spurred me on to find a Lantus source.  Click on the title:

Sanofi-Aventis U.S. Patient Assistance Program

Hope you can get some help!

Hi Lizzy, thank you very much for doing this. This reply window is 4 words wide and 2 lines in height, so I have to be brief. I click on the link to Abbott Freestyle Promise Program for the $15 for 100 strips a month, I got to their website, and then I click on 'Calculate your savings', I select NY, that is where I am from, then I select 'I pay out of pocket', it opens up a new page, and I can't change the number of strips to more than 50...Does that $15 for 100 strips apply to people pay out of pocket? Does anyone else have a problem with this? Thanks for your help. Michael

Hi Michael,

That calculator isn't an order form.  It just tells you how much you'd pay for 50.  It asks how much you pay now and your state, and calculates what your savings would be. If you want to know how much a hundred would be just double the price given.

I don't know what the qualifications are for the $15 a month advertised.  You can call this number:
Call Toll-Free 1-866-246-2683
(7a.m. – 9 p.m. M–F Central Standard Time) and ask them any questions.  There would be too many variables for me to check out every one.  I basically get you to the right screen (there are many before this one) and generally check out that the place is legit.  The rest is up to you.

Lizzy

Was all excited about the maximum $15 copay on the Accuchek Aviva, so, I went on their website to order the discount card, since I already have the meter. Here's the result:

"Unfortunately, Massachusetts state law does not allow us to send the ACCU-CHEK Connect prescription discount card to Massachusetts residents with primary insurance coverage."

Oh well. Can't win 'em all.
