VA eligibility criteria*

Providers prescribing CGM devices for Veterans must confirm and document the Veteran has been diagnosed with diabetes and is being treated with daily insulin. Veterans taking insulin daily are eligible for a CGM device. It is recommended that CGM be considered under the following circumstances:


check mark The Veteran requires daily insulin to achieve desired glycemic management targets and/or avoid hypoglycemia based on shared decision-making, as recommended by the VA/DoD Clinical Practice Guideline for the Management of Diabetes Mellitus.
check mark The Veteran has an uncommon condition in which hypoglycemia is a significant concern (for example, post-gastrectomy, paraneoplastic syndromes, and reactive hypoglycemia). These Veterans may be considered on a case-by-case basis by the endocrinology subject matter expert at the VISN or facility.
check mark It is documented that the Veteran has the knowledge and skill set necessary to successfully utilize CGMs, including an understanding of the need to do self-monitoring blood glucose (SMBG) for calibration as recommended by the manufacturer, and to evaluate “high” or “low” blood glucose results or trends based upon readings and/or alarms as recommended by the FDA and the treating healthcare team.
check mark It is documented that the Veteran has followed provider recommendations for SMBG and therapy changes. This will assist providers with determining potential adherence with CGMs, which is essential in achieving improved outcomes.
check mark The Veteran agrees to ongoing medical appointments with the multidisciplinary team at least every 6 months (more frequently as recommended) to assess the adherence and benefit derived from CGMs, which will be documented in the medical record and used for justification for continued use.
