Interested in a CGM transmitter and sensors, ext. 21629, interested in sensor reorders, ext. 21063 and interested in an insulin pump, ext. 21055.

My required disclaimer.

I am a Medtronic ambassador. My opinions are my own. They did not pay me to say nice things. OK, they sent me a shirt and a cup but even I am more expensive than that.


I was told today that the info about this is on the Medtronic website and on the Facebook page at Medtronic and that everyone got an email on this opportunity.

Is this true?



Interesting, Rphil2. MT is extending the hand of friendship to decrease hostility between them and the pt community, I think. They may be asking us to give peace a chance. I wonder if that will work.


this was released today, it outlines the program.

I called Medtronic three weeks ago and was advised I qualify to purchase Guardian 3 sensors at $60 a box (5) because my Medicare Advantage insurance does not cover the sensors. They were received two weeks ago, but I have not yet received the bill. I will confirm the price when I receive the bill.

I received my Medtronic bill today and I was charged $60 for each of three boxes of five for a total of $180.

so it worked?


Yes, it worked great. Now I don’t have to search E-bay and Amazon for black market sensors
