back in January the insurance company made the DH change what sort of meter he has to use to test his sugar levels (my rant about that is here)
at the time I was really mad that we not only had to change from a piece of equipment that was working wonderfully, but that (unlike previous meters) we had to pay a $9 copay for it
last week that new meter, purchased in January of THIS YEAR, quit working
we made the trip to get new batteries only to discover that we could buy him an entire new meter -- without a prescription or anything else -- for (you guessed it) $9!!!
obviously we decided to just do that, but it still annoys me plenty
