Diabetic Supplies

·                 For diabetics, Medicare covers the glucose monitor, lancets, spring-powered lancing devices, test strips, control solution, and replacement batteries for the meter.

·                 Medicare does not cover insulin injections or diabetic pills unless covered through a Medicare Part D benefit plan.

·                 Diabetics can obtain up to a three-month supply at a time.

·                 Medicare will approve up to one test per day for non-insulin-dependent diabetics and three tests per day for insulin-dependent diabetics without additional verification.

·                 Patients who test above these guidelines are required to be seen and evaluated by their physician within six months of ordering these supplies.

·                 In addition, patients must send their provider evidence of compliant testing (e.g. a testing log) every six months to continue getting refills at the higher levels.

·                 If at any time your testing frequency changes, your physician will need to give your provider a new prescription.
