CareFirst Selects LifeScan's OneTouch as Only Preferred Diabetic Test Strip
May 20, 2013
Effective July 1, 2013, the CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield Pharmacy & Therapeutics (P&T) Committee has selected LifeScan’s OneTouch test strips as the sole preferred diabetic test strip on our Preferred Drug List. All other brands of test strips will be moved to tier three or non-preferred and will require prior authorization.
Members with a three-tier pharmacy benefit may realize a cost savings when prescribed LifeScan’s OneTouch test strips rather than other brands of test strips. Members who continue to use other brands will pay the highest tier copayment and will be subject to prior authorization.
