Last Updated: 2/7/19

Different plans cover varying amounts of the meter/ strips; there are exceptions to the list below. Many plans cover strips through prescription plans so be sure to verify prescription plan coverage. Sometime it’s more cost effective through DME (durable medical equipment) so individual should check his/ her coverage. Also, some meter companies offer discount cards so it may be more cost effective to use the copay card instead of the recommendations below.

Abbott/Freestyle is now available with automatic lower copays for all commercial plans at participating pharmacies (CVS, Rite Aid, Walmart, Walgreens, Giant, Costco, Wegman’s).

Recommended meters by each company:

  • Abbott - Freestyle Freedom, Freestyle Lite, Freestyle Insulinx, or Precision x-tra

  • Bayer - Contour, Contour Next, Contour USB, or Breeze 2
