Continuous glucose monitors

If your doctor determines that you meet all the coverage requirements, Medicare covers continuous glucose monitors and related supplies for making diabetes treatment decisions (like changes in diet and insulin dosage).

The requirements include the need to:

  • Frequently check your blood sugar (4 or more times a day), and
  • Either use an insulin pump or get 3 or more insulin injections per day.

You must also make routine in-person visits with your doctor.
