ON MY BLOG www.diabetestalkfest.com/blog

I am officially dubbing July 1 as CGMS DENIAL DAY.

Me, along with many others are sick of being denied coverage for the CGMS. Join me on July 1 to raise our voices as a community.

If you have been denied coverage for the CGMS by your insurance company, Please make a post on your blog, personal website and or a video post wherever you are a community member on JULY 1, 2008 telling everyone how important the CGMS is for you to keep healthy.

HERE’S WHAT YOU DO:
In the subject line of ALL your posts please put:
REQUEST FOR CGMS: DENIED BY INSURANCE

This way we will have a way to keep track of everyone’s posts, and make our voices heard. I have created a logo leading up to the day if you would please pass it on WITH A LINK BACK TO this blog explaining what the day means.

I have also made a logo for JULY 1 to put up as well with your posts.

Together we can all make a difference. Maybe someone will hear us.

This is Great Gina!!

Check out Kerri at SixUntilMe.com.
She was denied yesterday or the day before. It is awful news for any T1.

I feel that a CGMS would benefit me greatly, 23 years with T1. I would love to see what whacked out trends my body produces, really, I would. ;-)

But I don't even have health insurance to send me a denial. But I am all for the fight, the cause, the voice!! Thanks again.
