According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS), reselling test strips is legal with a few exceptions. Boxes that are open, expired, or recalled will not be accepted. TestStripz also cannot accept International or Medicare/Medicaid boxes.
When discussing the legality of reselling test strips and lancets, it’s vital to clarify a common misconception: Strips and Lancets fall into a category known as Durable Medical Equipment (DME) along with wheelchairs, canes, and similar medical devices. They are not the same as prescription drugs or even insulin.
Here are the Top 4 Reasons people with Diabetes accumulate extra strips and lancets:
- Boxes build up over time
- Switch to a New Meter or Brand
- Leftover boxes following Gestational diabetes
- Someone with diabetes passes away
Wasting brand new medical supplies is illogical and helps no one. TestStripz created a platform for people to sell their unused boxes for up to $50 per box. This alternative market increases competition, which leads to lower prices. In turn, many Americans without insurance or struggling financially now have access to affordable test strips and lancets.
TestStripz has an A+ Rating from the Better Business Bureau, with thousands of customers nationwide. Their mission is to help people manage Diabetes through innovative thinking and new solutions. Managing Diabetes your Business. Making it Affordable is Theirs.
