Seems duplicitous of them...tom in MO;n882350 said:Per the Coagucheck's make Roche, they will not sell meters to individuals. You must have a prescription. I called them up and asked. However, per the FDA a prescription is not needed. Someone on this forum asked the FDA.
Also hardly fair either.I've used two services where they provide the meter for free and charge for supplies (i.e. strips and stickers)... My cardio's nurse clued me in about the meter often being free and mine to keep. The service won't tell you that unless you specifically ask.
You need prescriptions to prove to the insurance company the need is legitimate but if you are paying out of pocket...they should still ship. It's to keep the number of suppliers down and the price fixed high. Delivery of medical supplies is a kind of a scam in the US. They won't ship w/o prepayment even if you have insurance and been with them for a few years.pellicle;n882357 said:Hi

I wonder why?
