New technology helps makes diabetes care a little easier

Monday, May 2, 2016

Treating diabetes requires active participation, and monitoring blood sugar levels on a regular basis is an important part of making sure the disease doesn’t put you at risk for more serious problems.

Two new blood glucose meters with innovative technology have been added to the approved diabetes products list for TeamCare members to help keep you healthy. The OneTouch Verio Flex™ and OneTouch Verio® offer not only a number result, but a color range indicator to let you know at a glance if your reading is below, above, or within your range limits. Both of these meters also use OneTouch Verio® test strips that require only a small amount of blood (0.4 ul) compared to other meters.

Additionally, the OneTouch Verio Flex™ meter has built-in technology allowing you to text, email, or fax results right to your physician’s office or pharmacy simply by downloading the free OneTouch Reveal® mobile app for iOS and Android devices. 

When it comes to your diabetes care, only OneTouch® brand products are covered under your TeamCare prescription drug benefit through CVS/caremark. TeamCare members who qualify have the choice of a free OneTouch meter: UltraMini®, Ultra2®, Verio®, Verio® IQ, and Verio Flex™. Call CVS/caremark at 1-800-588-4456 for details.
