Interested in getting free glucometer? Chances are if you have been diagnosed with diabetes you are definitely interested, whether this will be your first glucose meter or a new one to replace your older model. There are many sites online offering free or low cost supplies for diabetics. One of these is FreeGlucoseMeter.com and another is Lifescan.com.
To qualify for a free glucometer at FreeGlucoseMeter.com, you need to visit the site online and choose the type of blood glucose meter you would like to have. There is information on a wide variety of products and there is a link on each screen that will take you to where you can apply for a free glucose meter. It is important that you meet the qualifications for such a gift. These include being a US resident and having Medicare coverage. You do need to provide details of when you were diagnosed with diabetes and how often you need to check a blood sample each day.
Lifescan does not sell glucose meters to the general public, but it does offer you the opportunity to obtain a free glucometer from one of the pharmacies that it supplies. Again you must be a resident of the US and have medicare to qualify. When you enter the information required, it is essential that you include your telephone number. In order to receive the free glucose meter, a representative of the pharmacy will call you. Without this information, your application is worthless and you will never hear anything from it.
Even though you receive a free glucometer, you will have to pay for the replacement needles and test strips for the device. The starter kit will include 10 of each, but once these are used you are responsible for paying for the supplies. These sites do offer low cost replacements as do many others online. If you have health insurance, you can really benefit from ordering your supplies online because most of these companies handle all the paperwork needed for your insurance company, taking this chore off your mind.
