Medi+Sure, a provider of diabetes devices, has announced that the Government of British Columbia (BC) has approved its 49c Medi+Sure blood glucose test strips.

The approval allows Medi+Sure to provide its Medi+Sure blood glucose test strips to BC’s PharmaCare Benefit Program.

MediSure president Mario Cortis said BC is the 2nd province in the past 2 months to approve the company’s Medi+Sure Blood Glucose Strips for provincial insurance coverage.

"We are delighted with this latest announcement and proud to help Canadian’s to reduce healthcare costs," Cortis added.

"At 49 cents per strip, MediSure brings previously unattainable savings to B.C. Diabetics and their Government, as all other glucose test strip brands cost about 33% more."
