Program Details

What is the CONTOUR® NEXT retail pharmacy Medicare/Medicaid program?

This is a special program that allows the retail pharmacy to buy specially-labeled products through a authorized drug wholesaler. These specially-labeled products can be sold only to Medicare Part B and/or state Medicaid beneficiaries where the state Medicaid programs cover blood glucose test strips as a Durable Medical Equipment benefit.

What is required of the retail pharmacy?

The retail pharmacy must:
  • Agree to the terms and conditions of the CONTOUR® NEXT Retail Medicare/Medicaid Agreement.
  • Submit Medicare Part B claims to Medicare through an Ascensia Diabetes Care contracted Medicare Part B Claim Submission Processor(such as eRx [Allwin Data], Freedom Data or OmniSYS).*
  • Buy CONTOUR® NEXT Medicare/Medicaid labeled products from your Drug Wholesaler for resale only to eligible Medicare Part B/Medicaid beneficiaries.
* List of Ascensia contracted Medicare Part B Claim Submission Services are available upon request from Ascensia. If the Medicare Part B Claim Submission Service that you use is not contracted with Ascensia, you will need to supply Ascensia directly with electronic reports.
