About the Glucose Monitoring category

The Glucose Monitoring sub-category is for discussion about continuous glucose monitors (CGM), blood glucose monitors (BGM), and whatever kind of monitor is coming next!

Hi, I haven’t been around here much lately. I am T2 insulin dependent and am very interested in CGM. I am aware of Dexcom and the newly FDA approved Freestyle Libre,. I’m getting pretty tired of finger sticking 6 or 7 times a day. Dexcom sounds like it keeps better track of BG levels,. I have Medicare primary – and “the Blues” (federal) Secondary (which covers most of my insulin and test strips etc). Does Medicare cover CGM devices? How about the secondary insurance? which is the best device here. Any info would be appreciated. I realize that putting the sensor in every 7 days or so is a bit of a hassle.
