You can get a free meter directly from Bayer and OneTouch from their websites also. Meters come with lancets and 10 strips. When you use up the strips, you need to buy more, however. If your doctor prescribes the strips for you, then your insurance will pay for them. Those who are not diagnosed (meaning that your doctor doesn't think you need a blood glucose meter and will not prescribe one) can buy meters and strips out of pocket. WalMart's brand ReliOn seems to be very inexpensive.
