Medicare Coverage of Diabetes Supplies
Covered supplies can include blood sugar test strips and testing monitors; lancet devices and lancets; blood sugar control solutions; and therapeutic shoes and inserts (in some cases). Medicare Part B covers insulin only if used with an external insulin pump.
You need to order your diabetes supplies from a National Mail-Order Program if you buy them at a store or outside this program, in most cases you will pay for the supplies.
Medicare Part D may cover insulin and certain medical supplies used to inject insulin, such as syringes, and some oral diabetic drugs.
