Insurance Covered CGM, based in the US, is pleased to be offering their services to diabetic individuals who need assistance procuring a Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM) through medical insurance. A glucose monitor is often an essential part of a diabetic’s daily treatment, and it can help them keep their blood glucose within a healthy range.
As the company explains, interstitial fluid is tested with a continuous glucose meter. The FDA has given the FreeStyle Libre 2 sensor approval to be worn on the upper arm, and the Dexcom G6 sensor has received approval to be worn on the upper buttocks, upper arm or abdomen. Although finger sticks are not necessary with CGMs, the user must keep the receiver/reader or a smart device close by. In order to help the user stay within their desired range, CGMs may automatically collect and communicate glucose readings as well as anticipate harmful highs and lows before they occur. Both these models are on offer through Insurance Covered CGM’s service.
The FreeStyle Libre 2 is a CGM that lets the user accurately monitor glucose levels with a painless scan instead of fingersticks. Anyone can use the FreeStyle Libre 2 app on their compatible smart device to track glucose levels anytime, anywhere. When the user scans their sensor, they will see a current reading of their glucose levels (and glucose trend arrows that help them see if glucose levels are normal, on the rise or dropping) and a graph showing 8 hours of glucose history. The device is recommended for individuals of ages 4 and up.
Similarly, the Dexcom G6 is a CGM that tracks a user’s glucose levels continuously throughout the day and night. The glucose readings are sent to the Dexcom G6 reader or the user’s smart device as frequently as every five minutes. It translates readings into dynamic data, alerting the user before their levels get too high or too low so that they are better able to manage their diabetes treatment. There is no need to calibrate with a blood glucose meter, eliminating the need for fingersticks. The device’s long-life sensor is approved for up to 10 days of use, a convenient feature for users. The device is slim, and has a water-resistant sensor, which is FDA-approved for wear on the abdomen, upper buttocks or upper arm. The Dexcom G6 sensor prevents clinically significant interference from acetaminophen. The device comes with one-button push insertion.
Some popular features of the Dexcom G6 include its customizable alerts and the ability to share glucose data with up to 10 loved ones. This would be a particularly useful feature for an elderly user or a very young child, as guardians and caretakers would be able to help maintain proper care. The user will also receive a 20-minute advance warning of a potential severe hypoglycemic event (55 mg/dL). The device alerts can be customized for two periods of time within 24 hours (eg: day and night schedules). The device is approved for users above the age of two. Both devices are prescription devices and are covered through medical insurance and TriCare.
A CGM is ideal for people with type 1 diabetes who are taking insulin via injections or pumps, people with type 2 diabetes taking insulin via injections or pumps and/or have frequent episodes of very low glucose and also for people who have trouble recognizing the symptoms of low glucose (hypoglycemia unawareness). The CGM device is also useful for those who often experience wide glucose fluctuations. It is also great for people who would like to have more information or improve their daily glucose numbers. A GCM recognizes glucose trends so the user can better manage eating, exercise and medication. It also tracks glucose levels while the user sleeps and helps them maintain correct timings for medication. The device can make it easier to manage Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes.
Insurance Covered Continuous Glucose Monitors, a MedSource, LLC company, is committed to helping diabetic individuals qualify for a CGM through insurance. They offer the two best CGM products on the market, and once a person submits their Qualify Through Insurance form, the company will contact their insurer to verify coverage and submit all required paperwork on their behalf. The company is proud to be accredited by the BOC. Their mission is to help people qualify for their CGM through insurance.
