Blood Sugar Monitor offered at Moncrief

In our continuing efforts to provide our patients the best in healthcare, Moncrief Army Hospital has converted to a new glucose meter, the Precision Xtra Advanced Diabetes Management System. The Precision Xtra monitor is easy to use, requires a very small amount of blood for testing, and provides fast, accurate results.  The meter is one of the best on the market and comes with a lifetime warranty as well as a toll-free, 24 hour customer service line.  Moncrief is providing this monitor and test strips free  to all eligible beneficiaries with a prescription from their provider.

The Precision Xtra monitor and test strips are now the only type available for issue at Moncrief.  If   you are currently using another glucometer other than the Precision meter, converting is easy.  You  may obtain a new Precision Xtra meter from the Outpatient Pharmacy in the basement of the hospital.   If you have questions about how to obtain this monitor please call the Outpatient Pharmacy at (803) 751-2385/2451.

We are very pleased to offer this new meter and hope our patients will take advantage of this educational opportunity!
