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
