Hi are any of you familiar with this. Using it? https://www.eversensediabetes.com/
It looks like john58 and I are the only ones who are using it right now. I try to work with my insurance providers and maximize my benefits, and since the libre 14 day in the us was useless…rather than buy a ($2500 deductible) Dexcom, I went with the $198 6 month bridge program from Eversense… I love the fact that I don’t have to worry about it coming off… (Dexcom and libre fell off <=35°) basically winter…it took a little research to have it work with xdrip and my android watch and watchface, but works flawlessly after it is setup… we have both posted on other threads, but am happy to answer any questions you might have…
Hi I’d like to find the other threads. Do you know how Medicare works with Eversense?
No medicare coverage for Eversense
You can try calling eversense and at least try out for the bridge program which will cover 2 sensors ($99 each) or 6 months. The insertions are usually billed to the insurance companies, and a waiver is accompanied…usually if insurance does not cover the insertion. They have a set limit… my endocrinologist was $250, but it can vary a little depending on your location… the office will usually let you know in advance if you ask them. For the threads, just search eversense…
From the Eversense web site, looks like the Bridge program (big discount for the first 2 sensors) is not eleigible for those on Medicare.
" For a limited time, patients who meet the program’s eligibility requirements may receive financial assistance towards acquiring the Eversense CGM System (after making an initial $99 payment). The Eversense Bridge Program does not apply to sensor placement procedure fees from patients’ healthcare providers, however, and patients must discuss coverage and payment for sensor placement separately with their physician (or other health care provider). The Eversense Bridge Program is not available for patients insured through federal healthcare programs or residents of certain states. To see full terms and conditions, please visit www.eversensediabtes.com/patient-bridge ."
I tried the Eversense and liked it. Getting my second sensor on Thursday. No problems with accuracy etc. and it works for me (although I did have one sensor that gave up after a few weeks, replaced free by the company). However it is not for everybody, there are differences between all the CGM devices and this one is unique. The cost for a cash payer is quite high, like over a thousand dollars per 90 day sensor.
Terrible. Thank you John. Everyone beware. Medicare is not the saving grace for things like some may think.
