Medicare Approved Diabetic Meters

Medicare covers yearly on-site diabetic testing and required supplies for daily monitoring and management of diabetes. If you have Medicare coverage and you have diabetes, you may be able to get up to 80 percent of the cost of glucose monitors, test strips and lancets covered by Medicare after you’ve met your annual deductible.

There are many companies that offer free diabetic testing supplies for Medicare beneficiaries. A few of the supplies you will need to get are:

  • Diabetic Meter (also known as blood glucose meters)
  • Diabetes Test Strips
  • Lancets

There are many different diabetic meters available on the market. To find out if the meter you want is covered by Medicare, contact a diabetic medical supply company like FreedomMed or American Diabetes Supplies and ask them if it is covered. These types of companies will normally handle all of your Medicare paperwork for reimbursement.
