Blood glucose meters allow regular at-home blood sugar checks to complement telemedicine visits, diabetes medications, lab tests, and ongoing diabetes care
9am.health announces that it now offers the CONTOUR®NEXT ONE blood glucose
meter and CONTOUR® NEXT test strips to its patients with type 2 diabetes and prediabetes to complement its all-in-one virtual diabetes care offering.
9am.health patients can now conveniently add Ascensia’s Diabetes Care’s blood glucose meter and test strips to their personalized treatment plan, with the meter offered free of charge to all patient care plans. The test strip addon is available through a monthly or quarterly subscription alongside their existing care plan for diabetes medications
and ongoing medical care. Additionally, patients can further supplement their plan with a one-time order of a lancing device and lancets.
Regular self-monitoring of blood glucose can be critical to managing diabetes and preventing complications, but many insurance plans still ration test strips or, if paid out of pocket, add to the monthly costs burdened on people living with diabetes. At $15 per month, blood glucose testing is more affordable through 9am.health compared to popular offline and online retailers and pharmacies. Furthermore, easy online ordering with a subscription at 9am. health can save patients the time and hassle of obtaining and reordering supplies.
“Answers for health questions shouldn’t be collected and forgotten between appointments, medications shouldn’t be another errand, and prescriptions shouldn’t be interrupted because of a busy schedule. We take on more of this burden, so our patients can lean back and have their medications, supplies, lab tests, and health team brought to them”, said Frank Westermann, Co-Founder and co-CEO of 9am.health.
“The availability of blood glucose meters has been repeatedly requested by our customers from the very beginning, and we are proud to have partnered with Ascensia to provide their exceptional CONTOUR®NEXT ONE meter.”
Frank Held, Head BGM Marketing and Strategy at Ascensia Diabetes Care, added, “We are excited to team up with 9am.health to bring the benefits of our products to more people with diabetes. Our remarkably accurate1 CONTOUR®NEXT ONE glucose meter is a great addition to their virtual diabetes clinic. We look forward to working together to help make it as simple and affordable as possible for people to manage their diabetes.”
Patients can now add a free CONTOUR®NEXT ONE blood glucose meter and 100- 300 test strips to their 9am.health personalized treatment plan. The offer is available to patients who have a quarterly subscription.
