On my last endo visit bill, I noticed a billing under “Ambulatory Continuous Glucose Monitor” for $80. I’ve been question this charge for a month and just got this response from my Endo.
“Insurance companies have started covering CGM interpretation as a separate billable item in addition to the office visit. This is similar to EKG interpretation that a cardiologist would do in their office”.
Has anyone else been charged for this? I’m seriously fuming as this is absolutely ridiculous. I won’t be handing over my dexcom at my next visit, I’m planning to hand over an old school log book in protest.
