Blood Glucose Meter Program

Preferred test strips

LifeScan® products are the preferred brands of test strips for the prescription drug programs. It offers your patients simple and accurate test strips and monitoring systems. The preferred test strips are OneTouch Verio® and OneTouch Ultra®.   

Prior authorizations required

If your patient chooses a test strip other than OneTouch Verio® or OneTouch Ultra®, you will need to complete a prior authorization form on your patient’s behalf. If the prior authorization is not approved, the non-preferred test strips will not be a covered pharmacy benefit for your patient. He or she will be responsible for the entire cost of the test strips. If the request for the non-preferred test strips is approved, your patient will be charged the highest level of cost-sharing.
