And under my plan, strips are DME. I wonder if the powers that be ever
tried to reuse strips. My plan is after $750 deductible, they will
gladly pay 75% up to $500.00. What a plan!!! One refill of strips eats
that up immediately.

So glad my friend sold me her slightly used 508 - which I wanted for the
slow delivery and the clicks. YMMV
