Had the experience of pricing a CGM and thought I would pass this info on…
When I visited with the nutritionist at my doctor's office a couple of weeks ago, she asked it I was interested in a CGM. Not knowing much about them, I said I would like to know more. She explained a little to me and asked if I wanted to check into whether my insurance (Medicare plus supplement) paid for one. I said ok, and then about a week later, the CGM company let me know that it did not.
Anyway, I thought some of you might be curious as to the cost, as I was. The monitor was $1,500.00 and they said the supplies ran from $299 - $349 per month. They asked if I wanted to pay for it myself, but I declined. From what I learned from the nutritionist, you still have to do a manual finger-stick twice a day to calibrate the equipment. I realize that there are some big benefits to having one, but for now…I'm good, since my bs does not fluctuate that much anymore~
