I don't have to send in my meter, but the insurance company is requiring me
to send in , every month, a month's worth of 4-6 daily blood sugar results,
or Medicare will not pay for the meter and strips.

Well, in addition to this ridiculous discrimination, I hope someone
challenges the practice of making people send in their meter every
three months so the government can see if we've been good little boys
and girls, testing when we say we do and not selling our strips on
the black market for money so that we can do, ahem, what with a
meter? This is a waste of plastic and terrible environmental
stewardship. A meter can last a long time. Think of how much money
somebody would save by not buying all those extra meters. Dumb! Dumb! Dumb!
But Nancy, Ken is right. I'd look at your insurance policy and file
an appeal according to their rules, in which you explain that you
have recourse with the department of justice according to the
Americans with disabilities act reasonable accommodation provisions.
Don't let them get away with this. You matter!
