3 Ways to Get Free Diabetic Supplies
(for diabetes patients)

The following article is intended for diabetics in the USA who need to monitor their blood glucose level for better diabetes management.

Currently the blood glucose level tests are doing with a special device - glucose meter (aka glucometer, or glucose monitor). Basic glucose meters are not very expensive themselves, but they use supplement - special glucose test strips. A diabetic needs one strip for each test and it can be expensive enough.

The good news are that more states are passing laws to further expand health coverage regarding diabetes. In May, 2004, 46 states had the laws requiring health insurance coverage to include diabetes treatment. The states not included are Ohio, Alabama, Idaho and North Dakota. As of 2002, Georgia and Wisconsin passed an expansion of current coverage requirements. In 2003 Hawaii adopted a resolution to clarify its mandate of diabetes education coverage.

The above means that most diabetes patients who have medical health insurance, can get free diabetic supplies including the glucose meter.
