Medicare's Coverage of Diabetes Supplies & Services (Paperback)
This publication explains Medicare coverage of diabetes supplies and services in Original Medicare and with Medicare prescription drug coverage (Part D). Original Medicare is fee-for-service coverage under which the government pays your health care providers directly for your Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) and/or Part B (Medical Insurance) benefits. If you have other insurance that supplements Original Medicare, like a Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap) policy, it may pay some of the costs for the services described in this publication. If you have a Medicare Advantage Plan (like an HMO or PPO) or other Medicare health plan, your plan must give you at least the same coverage as Original Medicare, but it may have different rules. Your costs, rights, protections, and choices for where you get your care might be different if you're in one of these plans. You might also get extra benefits. Also available in Spanish.
