Medicare and Glucose Testing Supplies
Question: How will Medicare pay for my glucose testing supplies?
Answer: Medicare Part B covers test monitors, test strips, lancet devices and lancets. Some blood sugar control solutions and therapeutic shoes, in some cases, are also covered. With original Medicare alone, you pay the deductible then coinsurance of 20% of the cost. Medicare Supplements or an Advantage plan will pay part or all of the deductible and coinsurance.
