New Medtronic/BCBS CGM Outcomes-Based Contract

Medtronic announced it has signed an outcomes-based contract (OBC) with BCBS of Minnesota for the standalone Guardian Connect CGM. According to the press release, the OBC is based on time-in-range metrics. In return, Guardian Connect will be distributed through the BCBS Minnesota pharmacy benefit. While the press release does not specify, it is believed that both insulin-dependent T1DM and T2DM patients are eligible. Below, FENIX provides thoughts on the Medtronic CGM OBC and how it could impact other CGM manufacturers, notably Dexcom and Abbott.
