Continuous Glucose Monitoring System
Posted 10/22/12; Modified 03/25/13
The HealthChoice plans do not currently cover Continuous Glucose Monitoring Systems (CGMS); however, effective for charges incurred on or after January 1, 2013, HealthChoice will cover these devices as part of its benefit plans. These monitors will be subject to certification by the Health Care Management Division of the Employees Group Insurance Division of the Office of Management and Enterprise Services.
The CGMS is a Federal Drug Administration approved device that records blood sugar levels on a continuous basis. The information gathered by the device is utilized by medical professionals to assess an individual’s average glucose levels for a period of three days. The information stored in the CGMS is ultimately used as a reference for making adjustments to a diabetes management plan.
To request certification, contact the Health Care Management at 1-405-717-8879 or toll-free 1-800-543-6044. ext 8879. If you have questions, please contact the HealthChoice Network Management Unit at 1-405-717-8790 or toll-free 1-800-543-6044, or send email inquiries to EGIDNetworkManagement@sib.ok.gov.
