Re: [IP] Strips from Minimed?
I also have BC/BS PPO of Michigan and get my supplies (pump supplies and
strips) from Michigan Diabetes Supplies. I noticed that Roselea gave you
the phone # for them. They have been great to deal with and so far have
always had the One Touch Ultra test strips. Another reason I prefer them is
because they write off what my insurance doesn't pay. My insurance pays 90%
of supplies and Michigan Diabetes Supplies writes off the 10% that's not
Brenda in MI
