Not easy to afford the other Medicare plans, limited income on SSDI. I will check into this for I will eventually will qualify for Medicaid that can help also. Thanks and have a great day. Hugs for today.I have a Medicare Advantage plan and it does cover 80% of the cost of a self-testing program thru a monitoring company. The meter and all supplies are furnished to me free of charge and I pay about $4/test as my share. It is my choice for weekly or bi-weekly testing. Contact Coaguchek Patient Services (1-800-428-4674) for details. Plan has been very easy to work with.
