I hope this isn’t a repeat topic.
Here’s the backstory:
I am having an issue with receiving dexcom sensors timely… it has to be an issue with insurance and the supply company. I’ve been on the phone countless hours with my Endo’s office, Dexcom reps, and the supply company… as nice as everyone is, there is still a break in time from when my box of 3 sensors is done, and the next box arrives. Usually if my last sensor ends, I’m waiting easily 7-14 days before the new box arrives.
What I did, after being beyond frustrated, was of course just go back to test strips until they arrive. The nerve of me, I would think, to act like I’m too good to go back to checking myself manually, just because I’ve been fortunate enough to have access to technology. However I have had people tell me, to be more forceful, don’t tolerate that, you’re paying for them, they are dropping the ball… etc etc. I don’t know that being more aggressive on the phone will get me anywhere.
This is the current situation:
So this is what I have decided to do. Forget all of the powers that be right now. I did not start my last sensor because I’m waiting for the new box to arrive. So basically I’ve been using test strips for almost a month already. The goal is, when I finally get my new box of three, the one I didn’t use yet will become the sensor I can use between boxes.
I would like to know, where is the best place/site to purchase a box? I know they are really really expensive, but, I’d like to save up and have a box to get through times like this.
Thank you for listening!
