Dave, dismissing alerts is a chore for me right now. I wear an Apple Watch and although there is a Dismiss button on the watch, it only dismisses it from the watch. Therefore I have to get out my phone for the official dismissal. Of course when the next Watch iOS update comes out, It will allow dismissal from the Watch.
Right now I have turned off the alerts on my phone and am using my X2 pump, mostly for practice if Medicare ends up allowing me to use the pump instead of the Dex receiver.
I have enough supplies to last until early February so I will spend this fall getting to love the new Watch software and even my pump. And then unless policies change, those options will be ripped away from me…
But I will survive. The financial value of Medicare coverage of CGM is significant enough that I can survive using the Dex receiver.
