Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM) Update

At the October 2021 AHCCCS Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee meeting, the continuous glucose monitor (CGM) class was reviewed for potential addition by AHCCCS as a supplemental rebate class. After further review, AHCCCS has determined not to add the CGM class for supplemental rebate. AHCCCS is in the process of standardizing medical necessity criteria for the AHCCCS Fee-for-Service program and MCO contractors for publication in the AHCCCS Medical Policy Manual (AMPM). The proposed AMPM CGM medical necessity criteria will be published for public comment through the established AMPM public comment process. Interested parties may subscribe to receive email alerts.

The AHCCCS Pharmacy & Therapeutics Committee (Committee) is advisory to the AHCCCS Administration and is responsible for evaluating scientific evidence of the relative safety, efficacy, effectiveness and clinical appropriateness of prescription drugs. The Committee makes recommendations to the AHCCCS Administration on the development and maintenance of a statewide drug list and prior authorization criteria as appropriate. The Committee may also evaluate individual drugs and therapeutic classes of drugs.

The meetings are open to the public.
