$4 Co-pay on Kroger Premium Blood Glucose Test Strips
Date:12/13/2012

CINCINNATI, Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- For the millions of people with diabetes that must test their blood glucose on a daily basis, the cost to do so continues to rise. People with diabetes can spend as much as $1,000 each year out of pocket on blood glucose monitoring test strips alone, even if they have insurance. 

The Kroger Co. (NYSE: KR) Family if Pharmacies now offers a program that will help diabetes patients with private insurance save with a $4 co-pay on Kroger Premium test strips. For example, if an insured patient is paying a $40 co-pay for 200 strips each month, the Kroger Premium $4 co-pay program will continue to provide that customer with 200 strips and offer a savings of $36 a month.

"We listen to our customers and one of their main worries is that their co-pay on blood glucose test strips continues to rise. Our Kroger $4 co-pay program immediately addresses that situation," said Teri Rose, Kroger's pharmacy marketing manager. "Our hope is that by providing real savings, our customers can afford other medications, diabetic supplies or even healthy food items."

Kroger pharmacies provide cash-paying patients who do not carry private pay insurance with a high-accuracy meter and test strips at everyday low prices.  Patients can get a Kroger No Code meter for as little as $10, and low cost test strips are available in 25-ct, 50-ct. and 100-ct. at significant savings compared to national brand strips and several other store brands.

There is no need to join a club to enjoy these savings.  In addition, unlike other co-pay buy down programs offered by many blood glucose strip companies, the Kroger Premium $4 co-pay program patients do not have to carry or renew any type of membership card.

In addition to counseling services, Kroger pharmacies help patients with diabetes by offering a full selection of the highest qual
