Because Medicare provides (normally) just 3 sensors every month, It is quite possible that one may run out before the next supply order shows up on the doorstep. Friday morning she called to inquire about the order and complained that she was out of sensors. To our delight, they immediately shipped out her monthly order, ahead of their rigid monthly schedule of releasing emailed order-forms for us to fill out as we have done for years with the G5.
Also, we asked our endo at last week’s visit, to send Dexcom an Rx for sensors to be worn for 8 days, which means they should send 4/month instead of 3. I was given that tip by a Dexcom employee. Hopefully it will pan out. It worked with strips–we’ll see if the quantity-increase will work for sensors too!
