Diabetes Test Strips Not Included In Drug Plan

Provincial Health Minister Ted Flemming is scratching his head wondering why the Liberals are after him about not including test strips for diabetes in the new provincial prescription drug plan.

He says it baffles him as to why anyone would think a medical supply that is not a drug would be included in a drug plan.

Flemming maintains the test strips are not considered a drug but the government is working with people with diabetes and making progress.
