Libre 2 USA availability

I just found it on the Costco Pharmacy online list, and will check tomorrow if available yet.
If similar to dexcom, they don’t stock at store, but can have ready following day.

I spoke to Cigna and they told me the libre 2 would be considered an improved product, and I would not have to wait for the 90 day replenishment… they told me they did not see a prior authorization for the new libre2 prescription which may have been the cause for the increased price difference, however, I’m still waiting for the drs office to confirm…at any rate, it is possible the price will stay the same, and you or your wife should not be required to wait…

It does cost more it turns out.

Checked with my local Costco, and they said wasn’t set up in their system to order yet. Was in a Target/CVS pharmacy today, they said they could get them. Did not ask cost, but may buy oop if cash discount deal is done by Abbott.

My grocery store pharmacy had a retail price of $75 per libre2 sensor, and my insurance company confirmed that they are classifying it as a non preferred item, and is therefore more expensive with my plan…looks like the promise of the same price is untrue


Up a couple of posts. #42

I put a link above to a post about possibly getting a voucher for the lower same cost on the Libre2 until December.

Thanks. I’m sticking with the 14 day for now, at work I am rather active ( 5-8 miles) and rely on xdrip’s predictions, ringtones, and watchface, which I would probably have to sacrifice for the libre2. At any rate, I’d probably pay more, and receive either less features, or the exact same since I am already using the miaomiao2

I have a miao miao with the tomato ap on my diabetic dog. From what I have heard out there the new Libre makes it harder to use with other aps. But I don’t know the truth to that at all as someone told me who heard type of thing. And it’s so new here that???

In Europe they would take the librelink app and modify it to send the info to an online account like nightscout, but abbot prevented it in the us…at any rate, it is getting much more difficult to use libre as a Cgm because many apps are having issues with android 10. I haven’t tried the libre2 with the miaomiao2, and probably won’t as long as they still make the us 14 day, as there’s no benefit, and the libre2 is in a higher insurance tier for me…

Libre 2 is available from Edwards covered by Medicare - however you must buy the reader out of pocket if Medicare paid for a reader in the last 3 years I got one for my wife at the small corner pharmacy 5 bucks cheaper then the walmarts who brag about low prices. The sensors do not ship until 10/9. See how they work then.
