August Revision to Glucose LCD

The Glucose Monitors Local Coverage Determination (LCD) and Policy Article (PA) has been revised. For dates of service beginning July 18, 2021, continuous glucose monitors (CGMs) now require 5 coverage criteria instead of 6. Criteria requiring that a beneficiary has been using a blood glucose monitor (BGM) and is performing frequent (four or more times a day) testing as a prerequisite for coverage of a CGM device has been removed. Please visit the LCD and PA Revision Summary for additional information.
