Wordless Wednesday: Unfair pricing

I always thought my test-strip distributor charged an unusually high amount for a (relatively) inexpensive strip. So I decided to see what my insurance company thought of the sticker-price.

TestStrip Insurance

That discount that they negotiated is pretty damn good. But it still leaves me scratching my head.

Why can’t the prices be the same for everyone?

  1. This topic could take up an entire blog. So, I won’t go off on a rant but will say it is absurd.


  2. Whoa… and I thought I paid a lot.


    • Actually, if you look at this particular case: if you subtract the negotiated discount from the amount paid, so insurance paid for all of it (I am incredibly lucky!). I honestly don’t remember how many strips or for how many days this was for.
