My Medtronic Minimed Continuous Glucose Monitoring Device Story

Gina Capone Health Guide
  • Recently, I got a call from Medtronic Minimed directly to say they were going to be handling my CGM Appeals.

     

    (GINA NOTE: I was denied 3 times and on the third denial I was also laid off from my job so I couldn't pursue further. I went onto my husbands plan right after I got laid off. The next day I called up my CDE to tell her my insurance would be changing and that it was still the same insurance that I had previously but a higher up plan than what I had. (Did that make sense to you?) Anyway, she said that she was going to call up the Minimed Rep that she deals with to find out how to move forward.)

    Yesterday, I had a message on my phone when I got out of the subway from another Minimed Rep telling me that she was putting in the request for my CGM sensors and supples and for me to call her back because she had to ask me some questions. She left on the message that she would be there till 630pm Est. and it was already 615pm I tried to call but she wasn't answering so I left a message.

     

    Now, I will have to wait till Monday to find out if that call was because I was approved, or if she wanted to just ask me a question. I am going crazy with anticipation here. Keep your fingers crossed I will keep you posted!!!!!!!

     

    By the way the CGM Anti-Denial Petition to be sent to all major insurance companies is over 2300 if you haven't signed it please do so!
