Adding coverage for blood glucose monitors
Flash Glucose Monitors and Continuous Glucose Monitors are becoming more common for helping people with Type 1 Diabetes manage their condition. Insulin-dependent diabetics who are having a hard time managing glucose levels can benefit from using these monitors.
The plan currently covers Flash monitors and their sensors only. We are considering offering both Flash and Continuous monitors, primarily for those with Type 1 Diabetes, but also including Flash monitors for those with Type 2 Diabetes who are using insulin more than once a day.
Anyone applying for Flash or Continuous monitors would require an in-depth medical assessment, and there would be limits on the number of sensors that can be claimed per year. There would be a cost to the plan and potential increased premiums to implement this change.
