I am on Medicare and told for several years by Medtronic that they are working for approval by Medicare for approval of coverage. I do not believe them because they just raised the price $45 per box of sensors if you do not have insurance and are on Medicare.
Dexcom is covered by Medicare for only $48 per month but it does not communicate with the Medtronic 670G which has been good for my diabetes control.
I have seeked information on how to extend the life of the sensor beyond seven days but the methods have not worked and I am stuck with changing every week which is $350 per month cost.
Medtronic has not been forthcoming with information and the persons that answer the phone are not concerned with Medicare and Social Security patients.
Can anyone help with a method that will extend the life of the sensor beyond the 7 days?
