The Libre Freestyle Coverage.

No matter which department we ask to get coverage for the new Libre Freestyle, the Alberta Government rejected coverage at every turn. The diabetic specialist, Dr. Burris, gave a prescription for it and says it is great because it shows graphs and glucose trends which is really helpful with Diabetes Treatment, which is a constant battle for one in twenty Albertans.

The machine would save tax dollars because it would mean less trips to the hospital, ambulance rides, doctor office visits, and will allow better control over diabetes. Coverage would make this cost effective for many Albertans. Everyone in the government that we have talked to about this coverage has said nothing but "No!" and won't even give it an opportunity. Even with specialist recommendations, it doesn't help getting coverage. Please help get coverage for this device as it will save and improve lives of Albertans. Medicare was supposed to be free for all of Canada, but it sure doesn't seem like that anymore.
