Bayer offers free Contour Next USB meters, as of May 2015, states Bayer. The free meter is available to diabetes patients who submit the online form at ContourNext.com, which generates a printable coupon. Patients take their coupons to their pharmacies with a doctor's prescription to receive the free meters.
Patients whose doctors phone in their diabetes-related prescriptions are also eligible to receive the free Contour Next USB meters, notes Bayer. There is a limit of one meter per person on the devices. The online form asks patients for identifying information, contact information and diabetes management information. Bayer claims that it keeps the medical and personal information confidential, and does not share it with outside mailing lists or third parties.
