The more you scan the FreeStyle Libre 2 app,* the more you know.
Scanning with the app:
Scanning at least once every 8 hours saves your glucose history on the app.* The app* also has a Logbook feature to add notes when you scan. Use it to track food, activity, insulin, and any medication you take.
Scanning with the reader:
Turn on your reader to start a new sensor. Hold the reader within 1.5 inches of the sensor to scan.†
Note: For the first 12 hours of use, confirm sensor readings with a blood glucose test before making treatment decisions.‡
Medicare coverage is available for the FreeStyle Libre 2 system if a compatible smartphone is used in conjunction with the FreeStyle Libre 2 reader to review glucose data. Medicare and other third party payor criteria apply. As a courtesy, Abbott provides the most up-to-date information available, but it is subject to change and interpretation. The customer is ultimately responsible for determining the appropriate codes, coverage, and payment policies for individual patients. Abbott does not guarantee third party coverage or payment for our products or reimburse customers for claims that are denied by third party payors.
* The FreeStyle Libre 2 app is only compatible with certain mobile devices and operating systems. Please check our compatibility guide for more information about device compatibility before using the app. Use of the FreeStyle Libre 2 app requires registration with LibreView.
† The reader can capture data from the sensor when it is within 1 cm and 4 cm of the sensor.
‡ Fingersticks are required if your glucose alarms and readings do not match symptoms or when you see Check Blood Glucose symbol during the first 12 hours.
