So I have been kinda looking into CGM's lately..Unfortuantely IL medicaid doesn't cover it so if I want any I'm gonna have to pay cash. :( *sigh* So I found out for dexcom their Gen 4 CGM (which looked really sweet btw!) is 1198 for the receiver/transmitter and the sensors are 349 a box of 4 (which would last a month) or they have a customer loyalty program where if you agree to order at least 6 boxes of sensors over the course of a year they will discount it to each box $299
Not sure about minimed yet...haven't gotten any price quotes but if anyone has any info that would be great.
I just wish I could have a cgm I just feel like I'd have much better control...although I know I really can't afford this...and I know I keep talking about it over and over again..it's just so sad...I think we wouldn't have so many problems if people who are committed to taking care of their disease would be able to have cgm's at a much lower price...even though I know this is'nt possible... :( Just feeling really depressed and upset about the whole darn thing.
