Gov J.B. Pritzker – Governor’s Office

CHICAGO – Governor JB Pritzker has signed legislation into law requiring insurance and managed health plans provide coverage for continuous glucose monitors. The bill expands safe and affordable treatment options for thousands. Continuous glucose monitors are essential devices for patients with both Type I and Type II diabetes to maintain safe blood sugar levels and prevent the need for emergency medical care. More than 1.3 million Illinoisans suffer from diabetes.

“No one—regardless of their socioeconomic status or insurance coverage—should go without the care they require,” said Governor Pritzker.
