Pritzker Signs Bill Guaranteeing Insurance Coverage for Glucose Monitors

A new law in Illinois will require health insurance plans to provide coverage for continuous glucose monitors.  The devices are essential for patients with both Type one and Type two diabetes.  They help maintain safe blood sugar levels and prevent the need for emergency medical care.  Governor Pritzker signed the bill into law yesterday at Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago, a center that treats thousands of diabetic patients each year.
