Thank you Kevin did you buy it in the UK? It's for my daughter and do you phone in your results to the hospital? Many thanks it will be a relief if we get the machine that way she is not tied to hospitals for something that takes a few seconds and also very disruptive for university too.
I purchased my machine from the USA. You can buy one on Amazon UK or Amazon USA. You do not have to phone in results, the idea is that you are self-testing. Have a look on the Coagcheck site at the promotional video. Good luck Kevin.https://www.amazon.co.uk/Roche-Diagnostics-CoaguChek-Plus-Sytem/dp/...
Hi there, I bought mine from the UK, won't be without it. I do as Kevin says i.e. Self test but I now also Self dose as my Hospital is happy that I have the experience to do it :) Been doing it for just over 5yrs now - great bit of kit and is easy to use.
Best regards to you all
I bought a machine coagucheck monitor in 2013 and love it . I got a prescription written by my dr and it got covered by my drug plan, (even though they said it wasn't), got 100% reimbursed. I am in Canada. The price was about $1200 give or take, the strips are about $10 a strip (can get boxes of 24 or 48). Those are also covered by my private insurance. Good investment. Before I had my machine thought, my dr just wrote out a requisition for blood work to test my INR while out of the country.
