CGM Denied… Again

The Dexcom was denied once again after an urgent appeal to United Healthcare.

Ugh. This is frustrating. The letter stated I was out of appeals and my next step would be to get a third party involved. The reason: The FDA has only approved the CGM for Type 1 Diabetes. I’m just one mom, there’s no way I can get the FDA to help us, right?

I know insurance companies are all about the bottom line. I get that. I understand that. I really do but this morning when Jackson’s sugar dropped into the 60s without warning, we would have known he was declining if he had this machine.

To the doctor who gets to make these critical decisions: To you he may just be another “claim”, to me, he is my whole world. Please do the right thing.
