Regional Kroger pharmacies offer co-pay program

ROANOKE, Va. — Kroger’s 111 pharmacies in the Mid-Atlantic region now are offering a program to help diabetes patients with private insurance save with $4 co-pay on Kroger Premium test strips.

If an insured patient is paying $40 co-pay for 200 strips a 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.

“One of the concerns of our customers is that their co-pay on blood glucose test strips continues to rise,” said Allison McGee, spokesperson. “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. Our Kroger $4 co-pay program has addressed that situation. We hope the result is that our customers can afford other diabetic supplies or medications.”

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 people with diabetes by offering a full selection of the highest quality products needed to manage their disease. They will benefit from savings on glucose tablets, lancets, syringes and other items to help ease the cost of diabetes management.
