Re: [IP] "free" meters ? NOT!


Many of the companies sponsor "giveaways" through an endo's office (I've
received postings on them from mine- went to one & my mom & I were both
given Accucheck Advantages, no purchase or anything required- the rep just
showed us how to use it, handed us each a free box w/ meter & start-up
supplies, & sent us on our merry way) or through a pharmacy chain...I got a
mailer on one of these about a month ago, advertizing "free meter <I forget
now which brand> with the purchase of 100 test strips".  Because this was an
"out-of-the-way" thing for me I opted not to go, but I did call & ask a few
questions for an interested friend, because the flier came with an attached
sheet with a space for a doctor's signature.  The rep explained that this
was required if you wanted to get an insurance reimbursement for the strip
purchase.  Don't know if these kind of things are sponsored all over or we
just live in a fortunate area- just south of Youngstown, Ohio, where both of
the above referenced giveaway days took place.
