Dutch National Health Care Institute has published the reimbursement conditions for Flash Glucose Monitoring under basic health insurance

22 May 2018

Real Time Continuous Glucose Monitor (RTCGM) is a way for diabetic patients for continuous measurement of blood glucose levels. For certain groups of patients, it is reimbursed under basic health insurance. For the following groups of diabetic patients will also be eligible for reimbursement of Flash Glucose Monitoring (FGM):

  1. Children with type I diabetes
  2. Adults with high average blood glucode levels that can be adjusted poorly
  3. Pregnant women with diabetes type I and II (excluding gestational diabetes)
  4. Women with diabetes types I and II who have a pregnancy wish

Patients with type I diabetes who are suffering from severe hypoglycaemia and/or can not perceive it (so-called hypo-unawareness) are not eligible for FGM. RTCGM is a safer alternative for this group because of the alarm function and (possible) connection to an insulin pump.
