New Programs for Diabetics Offer Free Meters and Test Strips
"Now is the time for diabetics on Medicare to act if they need money for any worthwhile purpose," urged Newborn. He also revealed that several reduced-cost and even free programs now exist to diabetics and the economically disadvantaged diagnosed with diabetes. Such programs include energy assistance, free prescriptions and legal aid.
Government Diabetes.Org offers the program that provides the latest information on the above programs. It covers free grant and loan resources available for a wide variety of purposes. No other organization offers the same range of benefits, including free financial assistance with issues like telephone, electric, gas, and other utility bills. For those looking to make more money, there are programs for diabetic government jobs placement in organizations like the Postal Service and scholarships and grants to give diabetics a leg up in improving their education. This is in addition to the free diabetes medicine program and over 1000 free diabetic-friendly recipes to help keep diabetes under control. Special programs provide targeted financial assistance to diabetic women and minorities, and provide handicapped assistance programs.
