Can I sell My Diabetic Test Strips Legally? (By Luthando)


Well the answer is Yes! There are many reasons that diabetics have extra diabetic test strips laying around their house. Some people switch meters because their doctor is recommending a different brand. Each brand of test strips has to be used with it’s own meter.

Others just cut down on the number of times they test per day or maybe they are no longer considered a diabetic. There is also the possibility that they may have lost a loved one in their home who was a diabetic and there are many boxes left over.

Not testing as often can result in a large surplus of boxes. So what can you do with all the extra boxes you have now? Well you can throw them in the trash or sell them for cash!

Maybe you are wondering if selling them is even legal. Yes strips are a Non-prescription product. The can be purchased over the counter in many pharmacy stores, Wal-Mart, Walgreens, CVS etc.

The only strips that can’t be sold are the ones that have been supplied by Medicaid or Medicare. These are government run programs that prohibit the re-selling of test strips.

But I have a prescription for my strips from my health insurance company. Is it OK to sell these? Yes, you can sell these as long as there is no labeling that mentions Medicaid or Medicare.

So now that you have all the information on selling your diabetic test strips you may be wondering where you can sell them at. There are companies that will purchase your boxes and send you a check, money order of pay via PayPal (you must have an account).

When selling the boxes there are certain things you must looks at.

Boxes must be factory sealed and unexpired. I know many people have told me that they do use strips that are past their expiration date but selling them is a different story. When selling your boxes the ones with the expiration dates of 1 year or more will get you the most money.

Boxes should be in good condition to get the most amount of money. Dented , dirty and ripped boxes will not be accepted by some buyers.

I bet you are wondering what you can be paid for your test strips. The pricing ranges from $3.00 to $40.00 a box and depends on count, brand and expiration date.

Some of the brands that fetch the most money are Freestyle Lite and Accu-Check Aviva Plus.
