I am not able to use my Dexcom now, for the past 6 weeks or so. I am in a MVP group (that is part of Medicare). Previously I had a NY State plan for my secondary insurance, and it covered my pump, Dexcom and all my supplies. Now the group has dropped the NY plan and adopted the MVP plan. I have to go with the group, I have no choice. It is my understanding that my pump will be covered, but the Dexcom will NOT be covered. I am hoarding my sensors and will use them only when I am taking a trip or vacation. That is when I will get the best use out of them.
I started using my Dexcom in January and I am concerned about the receiver and transmitter expiring and no longer being operable, if I try to use them many months from now. I cannot afford to pay for all the Dexcom expenses out of my own pocket.
I can afford to buy a few sensors each year, but the receiver and transmitter expenses each year is too much!
