What We’re Asking You to Do

 

Please encourage your patients to use products on the Preferred Drug List, and provide them with a new prescription for these products.

If the preferred alternative testing supplies are not appropriate for your patients, they may still obtain the non-preferred brand through a Durable Medical Equipment (DME) care provider and you won’t need to do anything different to keep your patient on the non-preferred product.

 

We’re Here to Help

 

If you have questions, please call Provider Services at 800-903-5253, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Eastern Time.
