HealthSelect Coverage for Diabetic Supplies

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.
