Diabetes supplies are often less expensive when purchased through a mail-order pharmacy. Some insurance carriers even require the use of mail order pharmacies as a way of saving cost. The list below is by no means all inclusive, but it is a starting place.
Be an Informed Consumer
- Be sure to ask for the prices of all products you purchase, especially if the company is billing your insurance company for you. If their prices are excessive, you will reach your insurance limits sooner than if you purchased from a store with better prices. Companies that will not reveal their prices should be avoided.
- Be careful about companies that waive an insurance deductible. In some states, this practice is illegal and can void your insurance coverage.
- There are reports of companies illegally diverting pharmacy products, including diabetes supplies, destined for sale outside of the United States back into the United States for sale at prices below the manufacturer's best US wholesale price. Such diverted product might have been damaged during shipment and storage. Insulin and test strips are especially vulnerable to improper handling and storage.
- As always, if a deal seems too good to be true, it probably is.
