Improved Diabetes Outcomes
Both real-world evidence and clinical trial results highlight the benefits of FreeStyle Libre portfolio‡,1-2,7-11
* The FreeStyle Libre 2 app is only compatible with certain mobile devices and operating systems. Please check our website for more information about device compatibility before using the app. Use of the FreeStyle Libre 2 app requires registration with LibreView.
† Medicare coverage is available for the FreeStyle Libre 2 system if a smartphone with the FreeStyle Libre 2 app is used in conjunction with the FreeStyle Libre 2 reader to review glucose data. Medicare coverage is not available if a patient never uses the FreeStyle Libre 2 reader, and patients must meet other applicable coverage criteria. See Local Coverage Determination: Glucose Monitors (L33822) and Local Coverage Article: Glucose Monitors (A52464), Jan 2020.

‡ Data from this study was collected with the outside US version of the FreeStyle Libre 14 day system. FreeStyle Libre 2 has the same features as FreeStyle Libre 14 day system with optional real-time glucose alarms. Therefore the study data is applicable to both products.
§ Data based on the number of patients assigned to each manufacturer based on last filled prescription in US Retail Pharmacy and DME.
‖ The FreeStyle Libre 2 app and the FreeStyle Libre 2 reader have similar but not identical features. Fingersticks are required for treatment decisions when you see Check Blood Glucose symbol and when your glucose alarms and readings from the system do not match symptoms or expectations.
¶ Fingersticks are required if your glucose alarms and readings do not match symptoms or when you see Check Blood Glucose symbol during the first 12 hours.
# Notifications will only be received when alarms are turned on and the sensor is within 20 feet of the reading device. You must have Critical Alerts enabled to receive alarms and alerts on your smartphone.
** Based on a comparison of list prices of FreeStyle Libre 2 system versus competitors’ CGM systems, assuming annual use of one receiver (or equivalent hardware) and quantity of transmitters and/or sensors according to use life. The actual cost to patients may or may not be lower than other CGM systems, depending on the amount covered by insurance, if any.
†† No paperwork hassles or prior authorization needed at participating pharmacies. This applies to commercially insured patients. This does not apply to beneficiaries of Medicare, Medicaid, or other federal or state healthcare programs. Participating pharmacies are subject to change without notice.
‡‡ Glucose alarms will transfer to the LibreLinkUp app users when users are connected and alarms are enabled on the FreeStyle Libre 2 app.
§§ The user's device must have internet connectivity for glucose data to automatically upload to LibreView and to transfer to connected LibreLinkUp app users.
