Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

Yes. Medicare still covers diabetic test strips.

https://www.medicare.gov/coverage/blood-sugar-test-strips.html

Check with CVS to find out if you will have to pay anything out of pocket for the test strips.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
