Here in the UK i was lucky the hospital sent me home with the device and a few strips, but my local surgery agreed to give me more strips so ok for a year.
INR so far in range and when i record the number i mail to the local surgery who give me the dosage that day. Currently only being asked to test every month.
I know people who have to go to a clinic so consider myself very lucky but as i say this is in the UK.

I don't know the specifics. My mother-in-law received her device and supplies through Medicare. How much is paid for may depend upon your supplemental plan.
I have Medicare. I am getting lucky with the diabetes stuff, like the meds and meter supplies. They are low cost which helps being on limited income. A lot of changes coming in the next year for me.
