New program through the pharmacy helps people with diabetes save on blood sugar testing supplies

(BPT) - When it comes to managing diabetes, people living with this chronic condition know it is all about blood sugar. If blood sugar levels get too high or too low, it can drastically alter mood, well-being, and even long-term health.

Checking blood sugar levels is an everyday fact of life for people living with diabetes. Now, with the Accu-Chek® Prescription Discount Program through the pharmacy, it is easy to get, and save on, diabetes blood testing supply products. This program is especially valuable for those with high deductible plans or those who purchase their test strips over the counter.

“Reducing the costs of diabetes care, especially during these challenging economic times, not only increases access to critical supplies for people living with diabetes, but also positively influences adherence to self-management routines,” said Matt Jewett, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Roche Diabetes Care US.

The Accu-Chek Prescription Discount Program bundle includes:

  • An Accu-Chek Guide Me meter
  • An Accu-Chek Softclix lancing device
  • 100 Accu-Chek Guide test strips
  • 102 Accu-Chek FastClix lancets or 100 Accu-Chek Softclix lancets

People with diabetes can download a coupon and present it to the pharmacist along with a prescription from the doctor to receive the savings. Restrictions may apply. See coupon and details here: https://www.accu-chek.com/microsites/prescription-discount-program.

The American Diabetes Association (ADA) recommends blood sugar levels are routinely tested to aid in managing diabetes. For example, it can help identify patterns, such as how blood sugar levels are impacted by meals, medications, and activities.

“This new discount program offered through the pharmacy is one-stop, hassle-free, and costs less, a combination we hope leads to better health outcomes,” Mr. Jewett continued.
