Medicare and CGMS coverage

Well I contacted my rep from Medtronic today and let him know about Medicare and covering the CGMS. I gave him the diagnostic codes and we are starting the fight to see what happens. He is going to go ahead and submit my claim to Medicare and see what happens. We are starting the fight early to see what all I am going to have to go through to get the coverage. I have plenty of documentation of where the CGMS has helped me since I paid out of pocket for it. I will keep everyone updated on the process I have to go through to get it and maybe it will help someone else out on it as well.

Best of luck, Cody.

I will keep tabs on your progress although I haven’t started a claim yet. I got an email a while ago from one of the medical websites I get info from re: coding for CGM thru Medicare, should be interesting…
