A supply company contacts a Medicare beneficiary and offers a new glucose test monitor.  The company then obtains a “lifetime” certification from the beneficiary’s physician.  Test strips and other supplies are automatically shipped and the beneficiary is charged a co-pay each time.  The volume of supplies exceeds what the beneficiary can possibly use.  The “lifetime” certification makes it extremely difficult to switch to another supplier.
