Does My Insurance Cover Genteel?

Most insurance companies cover the cost of diabetic testing supplies. However, you will need to contact your insurance company to find out what your specific plan will cover for a Genteel device. The insurance customer service number is usually located on the back of your insurance card. Genteel is a lancing device, so be sure to ask to speak with someone in the Durable Medical or Medical Supplies Department.

Tell them you want coverage for a spring-loaded lancing device (which is a unique design & makes it a one-of-a-kind device). The HCPCS Billing Code is A4258. We cannot guarantee insurance coverage, but have created several documents to aid in your effort to have your insurance plan cover a Genteel device.

The Lancing Device Designed by a Very Smart Biomedical Engineer.

Developing Genteel took almost nine years of research, and is now covered by 6 US and over 25 international patents. Instead of the more common industry standard spring-loaded device that uses a “dial-a-number” system, Genteel patents are in how its Contact Tips allow a different way to mechanize that adjustable depth of penetration.

Piston Assembly

The Push Cap is cocked before use and works with the Spring Shaft to create a vacuum which draws the perfect drop of test blood.

Lancing Device

When ready to draw blood, pushing the Activation Button releases the Push Cap and triggers the vacuum. Keeping your finger firmly on the Activation Button draws the blood to the surface. Remove your finger from the Activation Button before lifting Genteel off the skin to avoid splatter.


FDA-approved square-based lancet. Buy online or at your local pharmacy. No custom lancets from Genteel are needed.


Contact Tips attach to the Nozzle. For your convenience each Genteel kit includes 2 Nozzles.

Contact Tip

The Contact Tips control the lancing depth so the lancet doesn’t go in so far as to hit pain nerves. Every individual determines which of the 6 provided Contact Tips work best for them and continues to use their optimum Contact Tip.

Click on different parts to learn about them.

How To Test Using Genteel

Use one of the recommended lancets and place it within the receptacle. Replace Nozzle/Contact Tip assembly.
The Contact Tips vary in color and thickness. The thicker the Tip, the less the lancet penetrates into the skin. Conversely, the thinner the Tip, the deeper the lancing. Determine which of the 6 included Contact Tips work with the location you want to test on. Typically, you’ll only need to perform this once for the test location. For your convenience with each lancing kit, you’ll receive two Nozzles (one for fingers; one for alternate sites), which the Contact Tips will attach on to. Once the correct Contact Tip is chosen, it will stay on the Nozzle and you will continue to use that one Contact Tip.
Push down on the push cap until it locks into place. Make sure your finger is not on the Activation Button or it won’t lock. Push and hold the Activation Button to draw blood.
Once you have a small amount of test blood, lift your finger off the Activation Button BEFORE you lift Genteel off your skin.

After releasing the Activation Button and removing Genteel from your test location. You may now use your existing meter and strip to read your blood sugar level.
