I just found out that my new insurance will not cover diabetes supplies. Does anyone know of any assistance programs or coupons to help with the cost of test strips? Will change meters if needed.

If you have a Walmart in your area you can change to a reli-on meter. It's strips are more affordable

If you contact Bayer or other various companies they often send a large supply. I've received a year worth that way in the past.

Find a meter with the cheapest test strips is what I did.

Chris, which meter is that? Also, what's the best low cost setup (insulin, pump, meter, supplies, etc) you've found?

Bayer and Accu-Chek have a "pay no more than $15 on copay" card. You can go to their website and print off a card. I use it and it's great :)
