As of January 1, 2019, our Medicare Advantage members no longer need preauthorization to get FreeStyle Libre glucose monitors. They can now get these monitors at in-network pharmacies that sell this product, along with the current durable medical equipment (DME) companies. The member’s out-of-pocket cost is the DME cost-sharing amount.
Please let your patients know of this change that gives them easier access to this important medical equipment.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact your provider relations specialist.
