Navigating the healthcare landscape can be daunting, especially when it comes to managing diabetes. Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) devices, such as the Dexcom G6, Dexcom G7, and Freestyle Libre, have revolutionized diabetes management, offering detailed insights into blood sugar levels without the constant need for traditional finger-prick tests. Understanding your coverage rights under Medicare and Medicaid is crucial in accessing this life-changing technology. Active Life Medical is here to guide you through this process, ensuring you get the necessary devices and support for your diabetes management.

 

The Basics of CGM

Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) systems offer real-time, dynamic blood sugar monitoring through a sensor placed on your body. This technology allows for better blood sugar management decisions, as it provides comprehensive data on glucose trends throughout the day and night. Devices like the Dexcom G7, Dexcom G6, and Freestyle Libre are leading the way in CGM technology, offering user-friendly interfaces and high accuracy levels.

 

Your Coverage Rights

Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes who meet specific criteria are eligible for CGM coverage. This includes individuals who require insulin to manage their diabetes and who perform frequent blood sugar tests daily. The coverage typically includes the CGM monitor, sensors, and related supplies.

It’s essential to understand that while Medicare and Medicaid provide coverage for CGM devices, certain conditions and documentation requirements must be met. This is where Active Life Medical steps in to assist.
