I just wanted to let you guys know that I got covered for the Minimed CGMS at 90% by my federal gov’t Aetna plan. All I did was fill out the patient info form and fax it in. My doc’s office sent in their forms and voila - my transmitter and sensors are just waiting for me to get trained up. I did not have to appeal or fight anyone. The approval between sending in my paper work and getting the notification that the system was shipped out took about a month, but I think 2 weeks of that was my doctor’s office not getting their paperwork in. So hurrah for no-fight CGMS coverage!
On a side note, the Abbot Navigator was not covered. I never tried the Dexcom.
