> Dear Readers,
> Hello from diaTribe, and thank you so much for your support and for joining
the diaTribe, family. We have an urgent request for you - tomorrow, Oregon may
drastically reduce test strip access for people with diabetes and it's up to
us to stop them. Oregon's Health Evidence Review Commission (HERC) has
recommended to reduce access to test strips for people with type 2 diabetes on
the Medicaid-funded Oregon Health Plan. The new plan would give patients above
an A1c of 8.0% one test strip per week, while those with an A1c below 8.0%
would have no test strips at all. This jeopardizes the health of people with
diabetes in Oregon and sets a dangerous precedent for other states.
