Once you get that meter this may help you keep the costs down: Testing on a Budget
My husband just got diagnosed with type II diabetes today. We have borrowed a meter, but the strips are over $55. We have no insurance, and are self-employed, so we don't qualify for medical assistance. We make only enough to pay our existing bills....is there any program that can help us get a meter and low cost strips?

A diabetic friend of mine has Medicare coverage. She thought her medication cost were too high and I gave her the link to a free discount prescription card that cut her cost in half. It covers all prescriptions, can be used at nearly every pharmacy and even has mail order.
It certainly is worth a look.... you can print a card for immediate use from the site. You can also check prescription costs and participating pharmacies from the site.
