When I went to my Endo last week he asked me if I was interested in the CGM. I let him know that I was, Me being the type of persistant person that I am…I called my Endo’s office today and I asked if the form had been faxed to Dexcom, the office MA said it was faxed on June 17. I let her know I haven’t been contacted by the company or even a Rep. She gave me the phone number to my local Dexcom Rep. I talked to him for a few minutes. He asked me what insurance I had…I told him Tricare. He said that’s going to be a hard one. I let him know that getting the Dexcom approved from a lot of insurance companies must be hard. The Rep asked if I waned to pay out of pocket because the dexcom is on sale for $295.00. I let him know I would think about it and talk to my Husband. I used that as a decoy to get the Rep off the phone. I am not going to talk to my Husband because he would buy system for me; I don’t want to pay out of pocket for something my insurance should be paying for and my Husband shouldn’t have too either!
My Husband fights for his country, I am not going to pay OOP for anything! I will fight with the insurance company , I fought for my OmniPod, I will fight for the CGM. Why pay when I can get it for free or for almost no Out of Pocket cost to me!!!
I have to go call the Dexcom Rep back
