Effective September 1, 2022, HealthSelect Prescription Drug Program (PDP) administered by OptumRX covers diabetic supplies.
The HealthSelect PDP now covers the following diabetic strips and supplies:
- Contour® and OneTouch® glucometers are available under the Free Glucose Meter Program. These items must be ordered by presenting a voucher at the in-network pharmacy. Contour® and OneTouch® test strips, lancets and lancing devices have a $0 copay at in-network pharmacies for HealthSelect of Texas participants. Consumer Directed HealthSelect participants must meet their deductible before the $0 copay takes effect. Visit HealthSelect Coverage Change for diabetic supplies and glucose meters for full details.
- Other diabetic supplies covered under the HealthSelect PDP preferred drug list are included in the tier 2 or tier 3 copays.
- Consumer Directed HealthSelect now covers insulin before the participant meets the annual deductible. To get coverage before meeting the deductible, the participant must fill the prescription at an in-network pharmacy. The participant will be responsible for the copay/coinsurance.
