Has anyone on Medicare, been asked this question when requesting/confirming refills of their Dexcom?:
“5. In the last 30 days have you been or plan to be in the Hospital, Nursing Home, Rehab Facility OR received home care services? [¶] **** Medicare will not cover the cost of your CGM supplies while you’re in the Hospital, Nursing Home, Rehab Facility OR receiving home care services ****”
US HealthLink uses this, at least in part, to say that can’t process 90-day refills, but i think others do get them from other suppliers. I’m thinking of switching suppliers.
And from what I’ve heard, people have to fight to keep/use their sensors in the hospital anyway. I’m having some abdominal surgery at the end of March and once I’m off paraenteral nutrition I’d like to keep monitoring with my G6
