Will my New Talking Glucose Meter Be Covered Under Medicare?

Medicare Part B provides for coverage of diabetes testing supplies such as the glucose testing meters so a talking glucose testing meter and the blood test strips, the lancet devices and the lancets should be covered. So yes, Medicare Part B should cover your new talking glucose meter if this is the unit you choose to buy. Medicare Part B may require that your doctor stipulate or verify that you indeed require a talking glucose meter and that you are blind or are losing your sight. If you are going blind from diabetes related reasons, Medicare Part B may require this verification also. Paid Stamp Image

Your doctor may have to get approval for a talking glucose meter but it is doubtful Medicare Part B would deny this coverage for a talking glucose meter. After all, it is the daily testing of the blood sugar levels that helps the diabetic keep their blood sugar levels in check. A talking glucose meter would also assist your doctor to see a continued test history when he downloads this from your meter.

Since Medicare Part B does not have a gap in coverage once a certain dollar amount is reached like under Medicare Part D you always will be covered for a glucose testing meter, even if it is a talking glucose meter.

When you are considering a talking glucose meter you should get information on all of the audible meters available because some of them will be easier to use then others. One of the more difficult things a person who cannot see does is getting the blood to the meter so if possible you should choose one that it is easy to get the meter to the blood. This is especially true if you are newly sight impaired and still have to learn your way around.

 

Can a Blind Diabetic Easily Use an Audible Glucose Meter?

There are many different types of glucose testing meters available including some that are marketed for the blind diabetic market. One of the hardest things for a newly blind diabetic to comprehend is how they will continue to use their visual display blood sugar testing meter when they are unable to still see it. So a blind diabetic really can use a talking glucose meter so they can hear the test results of their blood sugar levels.

For a blind diabetic to easily use an audible testing meter would depend on how accustomed they become to using it. Certainly the newly blind diabetic will know how the unit functions so what a blind diabetic will have to get used to is using the meter with one hand and getting the blood to the testing strip.Diabetes Test Strip Bottle

With the smaller talking glucose testing meters they are also lighter so they can be managed using one hand. It just will take lots of practice and determination to get it right. The test strips are small, about 1/3 inch across and the blood has to go to the top of the testing strip. Sometimes it may be easier for the blind diabetic to set the glucose testing meter on its side then bring the finger toward the testing strip.

Of course there are other aspects of the talking glucose meter that the blind diabetic will have to get used to such as listening to a voice and understanding it. There is still a button or even several buttons depending on the model of glucose testing meter that is purchased. Also some of the audible meters require coding which does not come with audible instructions so the meter will have to be coded by someone else. But overall a talking glucose testing meter can easily be used.
