If your strips covered then probably your meter covered too, usually it is. Call to health care company.

I got a contour next, was the first meter I ordered but never used cause the next day my doc wrote me a script for freestyle. The contour seems like it is more on par with my relion, within 5 -10 points of eachother which if true would suck cause that means I 've been running higher then my main meter has been telling me the past month. I have the control solution for my freestyle. It falls in the range but the range is 70-117 it reads 88. I may have to buy a new freestyle lite since its stips are covered by my insurance. Least the meters themselves are cheap I guess.

Upside I wasnt running TOO high. My last a1c was still good.

What if they both wrong?
I would not try to find out which is right and which is not right. I would take another brand.
I use Contour by Byever. I use them many years. The difference is just a few points, and it is not meter but if I take sample with the same meter there would be different readings. Sometimes up to 10 points if I take it one after another up to 8 readings from different fingers. I do not know why.
Take care.

Have you checked the strips w/a test solution to see what their accuracy is?

I use a freestyle lite since my insurance covers it and have a relion prime from wal-mart as my back up... for a long time they read within five to seven points of each other but now they read 25-45 points apart. Which means one of them is definitely not working right. But not sure which.

Anyway question is does anyone use these meters? And has anyone seen a sudden shift in numbers in either of them after using them for a time? I really can't tell which it is, the control solution doesnt help as it only gives a range of 70-115 and both test in that range. But the difference between a 110 vs 150 fbs is a concern.

What other monitors do people use and how well do they work?
