Changes to Diabetic Testing Supplies

The Ohio Department of Medicaid released its changes to the Unified Preferred Drug List and most of the managed care plans have released changes to their Preferred Drug Lists effective January 1, 2021. There will be changes to the preferred and non-preferred diabetic testing supplies (supplies are not on the UPDL, so each plan may vary in coverage/preference).

You may need to send new prescriptions to the pharmacy for patients to receive new meters or strips after January 1.
