Thirdly you will be required to answer a few questions in order to determine whether you are eligible for receiving a free meter or not. Usually these questions include whether or not you are diabetic. If not then who are you taking the meter for. You will also be asked other questions such as when you were diagnosed with diabetes and how many times are you required to test your blood sugar throughout the day. What type of meter have you been using etc. mostly manufacturers and pharmacies are not likely to ask you your income in order to determine whether you are suitable to receive a free meter or not. However in some places you might be asked this question. You will then be required to select a color for the meter you want as many companies offer different colored free meters as well.
And lastly you will receive your free meter by taking a printed coupon to the pharmacy. You can also wait for the meter to be mailed to you, by the manufacturer instead. When using coupons you will be required to take a prescription from your physician along with the coupon. This prescription will act as a validation for the coupon being used.
