MEDICARE Has Changed
The Way You Receive
Your Diabetes Supplies.
- As Of July 1st, 2013 -
As of July 1st* you must choose 1 of only 18 suppliers who Medicare has chosen to furnish diabetic supplies to beneficiaries. You will only be allowed to use one of these 18 to obtain your supplies by mail. If the company you are using now is not one of the 18, you will need to find a new supplier who won a contract to service these items for you after July 1st.
These changes are intended to replace outdated Medicare prices with lower, more
prices. Suppliers submit bids to provide diabetic supplies at a lower price than what Medicare
pays now for these items. Medicare uses these bids to set the amount it will pay for those supplies
after July 1st. Only qualified, accredited suppliers with winning bids are chosen as Medicare contract suppliers. The program is intended to provide the following:
- Helps you and Medicare save money
- Ensures you have access to your supplies from suppliers you can trust
- Helps limit the abuse in the Medicare program
Take action now so that you do not receive an interruption in your scheduled 90 day supply of mail order supplies. If your current supplier is not one of the 18 Medicare approved contract winners, they will no longer be able to deliver your supplies any longer. Fill out the form on this page to get more information or call up at 855-556-1621. We will answer any questions you have and assist you with getting setup with an approved supplier for your diabetic testing supplies now so that you do not experience a problem later when you run out of supplies.
