Breakthrough in the Cost of Diabetes Testing Supplies

According to the World Health Organization, as of the end of 2000 at least 171 million people worldwide suffer from diabetes or 2.8% of the population. For at least 20 years, diabetes rates in North America have been increasing at almost epidemic proportions. In 2010 nearly twenty six million people have diabetes in the United States alone, and seven million people remain undiagnosed. Another fifty seven million people are estimated to have pre-diabetes. Diabetes mellitus occurs throughout the world, but is more common in the more developed countries. The cost of diabetes testing supplies and related medications has become a significant financial burden for the average American family.

The Community Assistance Program, well known as one of America’s leaders in prescription drug discounts, launched its new discount diabetic testing supplies program on November 15, 2011. The CAP Diabetic Program (CDP) functions separately but in conjunction with its Prescription Drug Discount Program that averages discounts of 55% on generic prescriptions at 80% of the pharmacies in the U.S. including all of the major chains.

The CDP member will receive a savings of over 50% off retail, over-the-counter pricing. Enrollment is free and includes:

· FREE state of the art glucose no code meter with alternate site testing. It has a large digital readout and it speaks English and Spanish. The meter is guaranteed for the life of the program. · FREE lancing device · FREE monthly ultra-thin lancets · FREE carrying case · FREE monthly shipping to the door · FREE prescription discount cards (provided through the existing CAP prescription drug discount program)

Members pay only for the glucose testing strips. The average cost of testing strips in a pharmacy is $1.00 each and sometimes reaches $1.50 each, not including supplies. The Community Diabetic Program enrollee pays only $.50 each for their strips and supplies are free.

For patients testing three times per day, the cost of glucose testing strips and other supplies at retail pharmacies ranges from $1,576 to $1,868 annually. The Community Diabetic Program cost only $528 per year. Upon enrollment, the member will be electronically debited monthly from their checking account or credit card for the testing strips they will need to test their blood glucose levels monthly. The member will receive their free supplies and their testing strips shipped directly to their door 2 to 4 days and there are no shipping costs.

The Community Assistance Program is a subsidiary of National Benefit Builders Inc. Founded in1994; NBBI has the highest possible Better Business Bureau rating of A+. Previously, CAP’s sole function has been that of distributing free prescription drug discount cards all over America and Puerto Rico. They had saved Americans over 100 million dollars at the pharmacy as of the end of 2010. CAP is excited about their new responsibility of administering the diabetic program and is dedicated to providing the same commitment to service that has elevated them to one of the top community service programs in America.
