Continuous Glucose Monitors do not require a prescription in the EU or UK. In the United States, the sensors are considered medical devices and thus require a prescription.

When ordering a Veri membership with sensors in the US, we take care of the whole process for you. As Veri is not intended for medical purposes, our partner pharmacy is able to issue prescriptions to individuals who don't have diabetes or other contraindications. Upon your purchase, you'll receive a short questionnaire, which a physician will review.

What is required for the prescription?

The prescription form takes only a few minutes to fill in. You'll be asked about contraindications such as adhesive allergy and diabetes, and you'll need to verify your identity with a photo ID and a selfie. Please ensure to fill in your details to match that of your ID card. Your data is processed in compliance with HIPAA, and only the prescribing physician will access it.

Can I use insurance or an HSA/FSA account for Veri?

This depends on your provider. Different providers have different coverage, so we encourage you to check with your HSA/FSA provider first. If they accept CGMs in your plan, we'll be happy to help you with obtaining a copy of your prescription.
