I recently was sent the new Mini Med 722 pump by Medtronics. The Mini Med rep. told me that as of yet, no major insurance companies have been paying for the blood glucose monitor that accompanies the MM722 pump. FYI, the monitor is designed to send blood sugar results to the pump via a radio signal. The pump can be programed to alarm when you are hyperglycemic or hypoglycemic based on a pre-self-programmed target high or low reading.
Has anyone had any success in getting a medical necessity exception from their medical insurance company and gotten them to pay for the monitors for the C.B. G. M.device? I have hypoglycemic unawareness and could greatly benifit from this new device.
