Hey there -
About 9 months ago I paid out-of-pocket for a brand-spanking-new Dexcom 7+ system. I used it for about 5 months then managed to LOSE the transmitter (yes I’m boneheaded but I was travelling at the time and the darn thing got thrown away with the sensor by accident).
After repeatedly cursing myself and agonizing over whether I should pony up the money for a new transmitter I discovered that I can get the Minimed CGMS free under my prescription plan - it does NOT cover Dexcom (which stinks).
Needless to say I went with the cheaper (free) option and I really have no complaints. It took a little while to adapt to how the MM prefers to be calibrated but I found it every bit as accurate as the Dexcom and the fact that I don’t need yet-another-device strapped to my belt is a huge plus.
So now I’m stuck with this Dexcom system minus the transmitter and I don’t know what to do with it. I’ve got everything (receiver, cables, charger, books, etc) - EXCEPT the transmitter so it is fairly useless except to someone who already has a Dexcom system and wants backup/replacement parts.
Is there a place where I could sell this stuff? Is ebay an option? I’m not trying to get rich - I just want to pass it on to someone who needs it in exchange for a couple of pesos.
What do you think is a reasonable amount to ask?
Am I allowed to sell it - the thing requires a prescription after all?
