Guidelines / Policy

According to the 2022 American Association of Clinical Endocrinology (AACE) Clinical Practice Guideline, CGM is recommended for all persons with T1D, regardless of insulin delivery system, to improve A1C levels and to reduce the risk for hypoglycemia and DKA. The updated guideline likewise recommends CGM for those with T2D who are treated with insulin therapy, or who have high risk for hypoglycemia and/or who have hypoglycemia unawareness. These recommendations are Grade A—indicating the highest strength made by the AACE—and are supported by the best evidence level available, based on data from randomized controlled trials. Managed care and payer professionals should take note of this latest guideline as part of the growing body of consensus recommendations supporting the coverage of CGM in a broader population of members with diabetes.
