I have recently started using the Contour USB meter for testing my BGs. I have been very excited about this product for some time and finally took the plunge. I am just curious to see if anyone else has used the products? If so, does anyone have tips or suggestions for best use? I really like the product, but it has been a bear getting my insurance to cover the strips. After two weeks of denials and phone arguments I finally asked if they would be covered as Durable Medical Equipment. They are, so game on.
