    Oh ..ok...im not sure what u mean by medicare...but if dvla requirements are the same as england then u need 3 months worth of readings...min 2 a day...and when driving...a medical by your gp if u not had one in last 5 years and an independant consultant to look at your meter and ask questions about your understanding of how to treat a hypo etc
