Five ways Livongo supports those living with diabetes

June 15, 2020

“I am especially grateful for the Livongo program, which automatically tracks my blood glucose checks. This is a huge savings of time. The meter and website keep track of the twice daily tests so I may print them out and provide them to my endocrinologist during my scheduled visits.”

— Rev. James M. Moran, plan member and Livongo participant

Remote patient monitoring is quickly becoming standard care for treating many chronic conditions. The Livongo for Diabetes Program is one example. Using the latest technology, Livongo helps those living with diabetes to properly manage their condition, which is key to leading a healthy, whole life. And, it’s available free of charge to employees and their family members with medical coverage through the Board of Pensions.*

If you’re living with diabetes, here are five ways Livongo can support you.

  1. Free glucose meter and supplies: When you sign up, you’ll receive a new Livongo blood glucose meter, a charger, test strips, a lancing device, and a supply of lancets, all at no cost to you.
  2. Unlimited free test strips and lancets: Livongo will ship you a new supply of test strips and lancets — free of charge — when you run out.
  3. Personalized tips: After each reading, you’ll receive a personalized message to help you stay on track with managing your blood glucose.
  4. Convenient mobile app: With the Livongo app, you can review your readings, get new ideas for managing your diabetes, and connect with other Livongo members.
