I have been on Coumadin for 8 years now after having a heart valve replace and I am sick of driving to the Coumadin clinic every other week. I test my glucose levels at home and the INR testing looks easy enough. Will my Blue Shield of CA Insurance pay for the INR meter? Thank you so much!
Hello there! It sounds like our home INR testing and monitoring service would be the perfect solution for you! Yes you are correct, self INR testing with the CoaguChek XS System is easy following a face-to-face training with one of our certified nurse trainers. Advanced Cardio Services is an In-Network provider with Blue Shield of California, Medicare, along with many other private and managed care insurances. Depending on your specific insurance plan benefits (we can easily verify this for your prior to service), the insurance may purchase the INR meter for you. Otherwise, we would just loan you a brand new CoaguChek XS system for as long as you are on service with us. Thank you for your question and we hope to hear from you soon!
