At Discovery Health Medical Scheme, we enhance our benefits so you have access to the best healthcare and devices you need to manage your health. We’re excited to announce that we have enhanced the cover for continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) sensors.

The level of cover you get for a CGM sensor depends on your chosen health plan and is subject to limits. CGM is increasingly becoming accepted as important technology to better manage diabetes, with strong evidence suggesting improved glucose control and lower risk of hypoglycaemia.
