Personally, I don't know. I buy mine on Ebay. A pack of 24 runs about $ 130- a little more than $ 5 each. I plan to see if I can get reimbursement from insurance soon, but I am not holding my breath, as I did not go through my insurance company to get my Coaguchek.Will insurance cover test strips?
There is an advantage to getting your own- you own it. Apparently, when the insurance provides it they still own the device. This came up about a month ago. I stopped reporting to the Covid Clinic my weekly results when I discovered that they were billing my insurance company $500 each time I gave them my results. That cost ultimately gets passed to all the members of my cost sharing group and I could not in good conscience keep letting them do this, so I stopped giving them my weekly results. They said that unless I kept reporting they would be forced to inform the insurance company and that my Coaguchek would need to be sent back to them. That was funny. Because I own it, no one can take it away from me.
