Medicare Advantage Plan

We can also help if your patients have a Medicare Advantage Plan through a private insurance company and they are using that Advantage Plan to obtain their diabetes testing supplies. Byram Healthcare can provide all necessary insulin pumps, pump supplies, Continuous Glucose Monitors supplies, and diabetes testing supplies to patients who have these Medicare Advantage Health Plans. All supplies are shipped directly to their homes at no additional cost.

If you have patients who have traditional Medicare coverage for their diabetes test strips, they need to obtain their products from a provider participating in Medicare's competitive bid; we can help them find the right provider.

Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) Coverage (For services performed on or after 7/18/2021)

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) coverage of CGM devices by Medicare under the DME benefit are defined in CMS Ruling 1682R as therapeutic CGMs. Refer to the Non-Medical Necessity Coverage and Payment Rules in the LCD-related Policy Article for additional information.

Therapeutic CGMs and related supplies are covered by Medicare when all of the following coverage criteria are met:

  • Patient has diabetes mellitus (Refer to the ICD-10 code list in the LCD-related Policy Article for applicable diagnoses); and,
  • Patient is insulin-treated with multiple (three or more) daily administrations of insulin or a continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) pump; and,
  • Patient’s insulin treatment regimen requires frequent adjustment by the beneficiary on the basis of BGM or CGM testing results; and,
  • Within six (6) months prior to ordering the CGM, the treating practitioner has an in-person visit with the beneficiary to evaluate their diabetes control and determined that criteria (1-3) above are met; and,
  • Every six (6) months following the initial prescription of the CGM, the treating practitioner has an in-person visit with the beneficiary to assess adherence to their CGM regimen and diabetes treatment plan.

When a therapeutic CGM (code K0554) is covered, the related supply allowance (code K0553) is also covered.

If any of coverage criteria (1-5) are not met, the CGM and related supply allowance will be denied as not reasonable and necessary.

The supply allowance (code K0553) is billed as 1 Unit of Service (UOS) per thirty (30) days. Only one (1) UOS of code K0553 may be billed to the DME MACs at a time. Billing more than 1 UOS per 30 days of code K0553 will be denied as not reasonable and necessary.

Therapeutic CGM devices replace a standard home blood glucose monitor (HCPCS codes E0607, E2100, E2101) and related supplies (HCPCS codes A4233, A4234, A4235, A4236, A4244, A4245, A4246, A4247, A4250, A4253, A4255, A4256, A4257, A4258, A4259). Claims for a BGM and related supplies, billed in addition to an approved CGM device (code K0554) and associated supply allowance (code K0553), will be denied. Refer to the Coding Guidelines in the LCD-related Policy Article for additional information.

All therapeutic CGM devices billed to Medicare using HCPCS code K0554 must be reviewed for correct coding by the Pricing, Data Analysis and Coding (PDAC) contractor. Continuous Glucose Monitor systems that are billed using HCPCS code K0554, but that are not listed on the Product Classification List for HCPCS code K0554, will be denied as incorrect coding. Refer to the Coding Guidelines in the LCD-related Policy Article for additional information..
