Good news for UnitedHealthcare Employer and Individual “Commercial” members!

 

Ascensia Diabetes Care is pleased to announce the improved access of CONTOUR®NEXT meters and test strips for UnitedHealthcare members with diabetes.

UnitedHealthcare members enrolled in UnitedHealthcare Employer and Individual “Commercial” plans can now obtain the CONTOUR®NEXT portfolio of meters and test strips through their pharmacy benefit at a Tier 2 copay level.

By working together, Ascensia Diabetes Care and UnitedHealthcare are helping people with diabetes access the test strips and meters needed for them to effectively manage their diabetes.

Members enrolled in UnitedHealthcare’s Employer and Individual “Commercial” plans.

By providing Tier 2 pharmacy benefit status in UnitedHealthcare Employer and Individual “Commercial” plans, this change increases access to the CONTOUR®NEXT portfolio of meters and test strips for UnitedHealthcare members with diabetes.

UnitedHealthcare Employer and Individual “Commercial” members did not have access to the CONTOUR®NEXT portfolio of meters and test strips unless a Prior Authorization was approved by the plan for members. Ascensia Diabetes Care  has worked with UnitedHealthcare to effect this change in order to give more people the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of the highly accurate CONTOUR®NEXT portfolio of meters and test strips.
