    I am prescribed 300 test strips per month. I try to have tight control of my Type 2.
    My fear is that at the end of 2018 I plan on retiring and am not willing to give up my testing routine. I wonder what type of supplemental insurance I am going to need. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I've been fighting with Medicare for several years to get approval for the 8 strips/day I use. Prior to Medicare I had no problem getting/using that amount. There are some lower-cost test strip alternatives out there if you find you'll need to pay out-of-pocket for them. Walmart's Relion is one I hear of often.
