Has anyone here heard of this? Its zero out of pocket for diabetics. Insurance companies pay for this for the diabetic. The customer recieves a Diabetic kit. The Diabetic Kit each Member receives includes a blood glucose testing monitor, blood glucose test strips, lancet device and lancets, and glucose control solution, and a holder for the monitor. At the end of the day, they plug in the holder, put the monitor in it and the holder calls an 800 numer and transmits the information.
Medpoint advantage is not a diabetic supply company.
The Advantage is they are able to monitor the diabetics daily results. The doctor is able to see the daily results instead of relying on a 3 month average which has been the standard for years. This gives a better understanding of what is going on with your blood sugars. The doctor is able to better treat his/her patient.
If you do not have diabetes or know someone who does it is difficult to understand that high blood sugars can cause blindness, ESRD, loss of limbs, etc. It is something that if controlled and monitored, can be a life saver.
If you are a diabetic or know someone who is... this is a great thing to have. Contact me at email@example.com for an application and I will email or fax it to you..

Yupp! Such an option should be highly appreciated by one and all if it truly provides with an estimate of the current functioning results before we get into any supplier. But when you're talking about controlling it...I'd truly like to know if it can be controlled at all!
Well,I've come to know of an instrument that would just get a drop of my blood to derive the level of sugar in my body. How about that! I'd share the name of the instrument as soon as I manage it. Thanks to all in the community! RickJohnson

My friend, this BMI calculator is also another instrument of great significance...I've often tried it off with a couple of friends n relatives...n if you'd believe me it has indeed yielded great results.

The insurance company does not pay for the plan. How can Medpoint pay for a plan that has a $0 Premium? The answer is that it is a special Needs Diabetic Plan (SNP) that is available in all States, and in all Counties.
If the diabetic has Medicare then Medpoint is reimbursed through the Center for Medicare Services (CMS). If the diabetic has medical insurance it works best if the deductable is low since Medpoint will bill the insurance company.
If anyone wants to know more about this much needed Medpoint product either contact Mary at the email she left above or contact me at Medpoint@kastlerock.net
Good job Mary.

I know this disease management company - Medpoint Advantage is helping lots of diabetics in my area here in Wyoming. Its very nice to know that the doctors can view the patients glucose level on a daily basis via computer. If it is too high or too low they get a call from a care coordinator to let them know to call their doctor. This is the first company of its kind to monitor diabetes. Its a great help for children and their parents and for seniors, or just anyone that has diabetes. I signed my father and my father-in-law up for it, one is in Texas and one is in Ohio. They are both very happy with the plan. The only thing they need to do now is provide the needles and the insulin - but I have heard thru the grapevine that they are working on that as well.
have a great weekend

This is a great post with invaluable information, my mother is diabetic and so is my mother inlaw and they manage their disease in completely different ways, one with medication and monitoring and the other does it by diet. I know they both use testing supplies, I will pass this information on to them. Thank you for a great posts.

I'll have to look at this, my grampa has diabetes, but he hardly cares, the only changes he's made to his life is using sweeteners instead of sugar!
Once every 3 months is far too long, someones blood sugar can go crazy in just a week. But if it gets updated every day, it could save countless lives.
Thanks for posting this.

Many name-brand medications for diabetes (and countless other conditions) are available for either $15 or $20 per month. Check out LifelineToMeds for a list of drugs available at low-cost to those without drug insurance or Medicare Part D. If you need a generic diabetes med, most are only $4 at Target or Walmart pharmacies. If your generic isn't available on their $4 list, you will probably get the best price for it at Costco because they don't mark up generics much. You don't need a Costco membership to use their pharmacy. If you need additional advice or help, contact me at LifelineForMeds.com or LifelineForMeds@yahoo. Helping is my mission. Peace, health and happiness to all. Diana
