How To Order A CGM

The most common ways people order a Continuous Glucose Monitor

So, your doctor has prescribed you a continuous glucose monitor (CGM), and you’re excited about the advantages it will bring over a traditional monitor. But how do you go about getting one? Today, most insurance providers cover CGMs, and you have options when it comes to ordering your device and accessories. Here are the most common ways people order their CGM device:

How to order a Continuous Glucose Monitor

From The Manufacturer

One option is to order your CGM directly from the manufacturer. All major US CGM brands allow customers to order their devices online or over the phone. You must have a prescription from your doctor, and not all forms of insurance are accepted.

From A Pharmacy

You may be able to order your CGM through the same pharmacy* you use to get you other medications.

  • Your doctor can send the prescription and, in most cases, you can pick up your device in one to two business days.
  • If you have a written prescription you can drop it off and then return to pick up your device in one to two business days.
  • Your pharmacy may be able to provide you with replacements of your transmitter, which need to be changed according to your doctor’s recommendation. Transmitters are only used with real-time CGMs, which you can learn more about in our CGM basics

*Not all pharmacies can provide every brand of CGM or their accessories. Speak with your pharmacist to find out if yours is available.
