Every calendar year (January to December), you and your dependants can each apply your per person maximum of $4,000 towards the purchase of alcohol swabs, glucose monitors, lancets, penlets and syringes. Additionally, if you or your dependants have insulin-dependent diabetes, you can use your maximum to purchase a flash glucose monitor (e.g. FreeStyle Libre) based on a rolling two-year period and 30 sensors based on a rolling one-year period. Insulin pumps, continuous glucose monitoring receivers/transmitters and insulin are covered separately.
Note: dispensing fees for Continuous Glucose Monitoring supplies (i.e. Dexcom and FreeStyle Libre products) will not be covered as of February 1, 2022.
