Why You Should Sell Your Diabetic Test Strips.
Even if you have never heard of people selling their surplus diabetic strips, do not think it has not been happening. Also, it is worth noting that it is not illegal to do so. When it comes to using diabetic strips, they are only useful to you before the expiry date knocks on the door and after that no matter the number of them remaining you will not get proper readings with them. Do not think of this as the insurance money but rather what you spend paying premium which is why you letting the diabetic test strips expire is not that different from throwing away your own money. Depending on the health insurance policy you are using, you might be enjoying some discount when you to go make a purchase of the strips. Some people get huge discounts which means the amount might be less by 10 dollars for each strip and you might actually make one or dollar profits for each one of them even if you resell at less than the retailing price. Having something that excites you to wake up early in the morning is great and even if you already have money to get you buy the sense of accomplishment will be good for you since much of the diabetic population is elderly and retired.
Having health insurance makes things easier for those suffering from diabetes because they will get the strips and their medications on time but not everyone has enough money to cover for this.Thus, by selling your strips at lower rates it means the less fortunate will be able to get them at a lesser amounts than what the rates at the drug stores are. There are so many people who need these strips ranging from the poor in your community to health centers all over the world who depend on donors for their supplies. Even though you might not feel jittery in your stomach you can rest assured that the efforts you will have made will help people across the world.
When you share the surplus you have with the rest of the world, manufacturers will not be forced to get more resources in order to manufacturer enough strips for everyone. To you they might just be tiny strips but there are so many raw materials and processes which go in to making them. You should be working towards conserving the environment not helping in destroying it. To note is that when you sell strips which were very close to expiring you remove the possibility of getting faulty reading. If you need more info. on how to go about this you can click here.
