... prescription plan from our "retired" company. We have always been charged for this for this prescription. Medicare booklet (on page 33) states "Diabetes supplies - includes blood sugar testing monitors, bloor sugar test strips, lancet devices and lancets, blood sugar control solutions, and therapeutic shoes (in some cases)." Is it correct that he has to pay for "tablets" - which is obviously not a "solution", but yet it is used to control blook sugar levels?
I'm not very familiar with the plans of Medicare ... but it does appear to be unreasonable for them to not pay for medicines for diabetes.
I guess the reason they just don't pay for diabetes medicines is because the newer ones are more expensive than drugs like sulphonylureas and metformin. I think they should have a small list of medicines (especially cheap ones) that they could pay for.
