Looks like a new bill was introduced into the Senate regarding Medicare’s coverage for continuous glucose monitors. As you may have read on my blog, I appealed Medicare’s decision to deny me coverage for my CGM … up to the 4th level. I was denied at every level. Even though two Administrative Law Judges agreed that I had proved medical necessity AND cost effectiveness, I was still denied because Medicare ruled in 2006 that CGM was “precautionary.”
This bill, introduced by Senate Diabetes Caucus co-chairs, Senator Susan Collins of Maine and Senator Shaheen of New Hampshire, needs your action!
Please get INVOLVED, even if it doesn’t affect you YET, by taking the following 2 actions:
- Click here to email your U.S. Senators to urge them to co-sponsor legislation that would ensure Medicare covers CGM
- Click here to sign a petition to urge Medicare to act now to cover CGM
This is IMPORTANT for ALL OF US!!!
With much appreciation and thanks … let’s bring Medicare up to date on technology!
