I will look at the links I have saved and see if I have any thing that helps.
I think the Welcome To Together Rx Access, card gets a discount on OneTouch strips , they are on the list of prescriptions. Dont know what the discount is, but I used my card when I was with out insurance and it saved a good bit on my antibiotic and painpills after I had a tooth removed last year.

Right now I am currently without health insurance and was wondering if anyone knew where or how I could get cheap or discounted test strips until my health insurance kicks in. I have tried Ebay but I would like to know if there are better options. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
When is your health insurance going to kick in?

Diabetes is an Art, NOT a Science. You must master the control by skills and not by knowledge alone.

I'd say ebay. I just bought 100 test strips for $56 (including shipping). But, you might be able to find a better deal. I do have coverage with my insurance, but I don't want to call my doc office for frequent refills. Their current prescription is for testing 2 times a day. But, I check anywhere beteen 4-6 times a day.
You can ask your doc to up your prescription, mine just did, from 4 times to 8 times a day; could save you lots of $$!

Thanks for all your reply's and help! My insurance should kick in 2 months from now, but you all know how expensive everything can be without insurance. Once again thanks again to everybody!
You won't find "cheap" one touch strips anywhere execpt ebay. I would go to walmart and buy the reli-on brand of strips and one of their cheap meters.
