Also if anyone knows the prices of these things if they could also tell me. Please respond with any related informationon this topic of monitoring yourself and any tips.

Hi!

No, insurance coverage. Considered as a tool like a thermometer. Although I am more spunky now than when I first requested coverage four years ago. Thing is, they still are working and don't need replacing, just battery replacement.

Heart rate monitor: by "Polar", USA (polar heart rate monitor model "target") I only have heart rate, for a high alarm and a low alarm and time of day. They have fancier models too. The simple one I use was around $99 and sports stores sell them.

The Blood pressure monitor is a wrist model. Purchased thru QVC made by "Mark of Fitness" It is very accurate and easy to use. It was around $65. Many styles are out there.

good luck!

My insurance covered the monitor for my wife (or at least 90% of it). It really depends on your coverage. If they cover medical devices, chances are they will cover a BP monitor if you have these conditions. I just had my wife's doctor write a "prescription" for a blood pressure monitor.
