I have made posts on many sites about the bill that would require Medicare to cover CGM’s. That bill may never be considered unless more Congressmen/women and Senators support the bill. Many of my friends knew that I had not used a CGM for several years, because my insurance changed, and Medicare turned down my request for a CGM. My endo sent Medicare a letter of medical necessity (I have some hypo unawareness), but my request was still denied.
In the Joslin Medalist group on Facebook several medalists have mentioned that they have hypo unawareness. I have that problem sometimes, and cannot feel a low until it drops into the low 50’s. I have read that type 1 people are more apt to experience hypo unawareness when they are older. It seems that people who are older, and on Medicare are less important, and can be denied. This is so unfair!!
Please excuse my rant. I am okay!!
