Montana lawmakers are considering a bill that would require insurance companies to cover continuous glucose monitors, or CGMs, for people with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, reports Kaiser Health News. Multiple studies and experts back up the effectiveness of the devices, showing better blood test results, fewer long-term complications, and a reduction in health care costs. House Bill 758 has broad support from lawmakers, but it faces opposition from insurance companies and some providers.
