Walgreens Offers Free Shipping for Medicare Part B Testing Supplies


Now seniors living with diabetes can get testing supplies at their neighborhood Walgreens pharmacy or delivered to their home without paperwork or upfront cost

Seniors with diabetes now have two convenient, affordable options for receiving their Medicare Part B covered diabetes testing supplies from Walgreens. Patients can pick up their supplies at any of more than 6,400 convenient locations or Walgreens can mail the supplies to their home at no cost.

Signing up for the service is effortless – there’s no paperwork or upfront cost. Eligible seniors can simply call 888-PARTB-65 or request a call from Walgreens at Part B specialists will answer any questions and complete all claim forms.

Generally, Medicare covers 80 percent of the cost of diabetes testing supplies including blood glucose meters, test strips, lancets, lancing devices, control solution and replacement batteries for meters. Now, Walgreens will bill Medicare directly, as well as supplemental insurance plans for the portion not covered by Medicare. Patients are only responsible for any co-payment or deductible not covered by supplemental insurance.

“This service provides an unmatched level of convenience for Medicare Part B patients or their caregivers,” said Walgreens senior vice president of health care innovation, Don Huonker. “No other pharmacy has more nearby locations, where patients can receive face-to-face guidance and support, and the option to have supplies delivered to their door. Plus, it’s available without the burden of filling out complicated forms or waiting for supplemental insurance reimbursement. We’re addressing the need for ease and accessibility without sacrificing peace of mind.”
