hi @damien -
Have you tried taking your One Touch Rx to another pharmacy? I suspect you are locked into using Caremart/CVS as your mail order pharmacy, but I thought I’d ask anyway.
When I had had Caremark as my mail order pharmacy, I found out my health insurance covered all my dbx supplies under the durable medical equipment (DME) provision of my health insurance coverage.
Call the insurance company, ask them what’s covered by your DME provision (name the specific diabetic supplies you use) and ask for the DME suppliers they partner with (so they are considered “in network”). Make sure you get a 3rd party provider for diabetic supplies (most DME are oxygen tanks, walkers, hospital beds, and the like - those providers don’t offer dbx supplies).
The worst thing is you’ve spent a few hours making calls. The best is, well, you pay $0 out of pocket.
DME benefit rarely has the same restrictions as the pharmacy benefit and you’ll be free to get your One Touch supplies.
I’ve fought against moving to Accu-Check for years. My endo agrees with me that it’s sub-par compared to the One-Touch.
Best of luck - let me know if you have success!
To your good health -
