Gina over at Diabetes Talkfest has declared July 1st as Continuous Glucose Monitor System Denial Day. I personally have not been denied the CGMS . . . . but that is partly because I haven't tried to get coverage for one yet. The way things seem to be going, once my doctor and I decide I am ready to use one, chances are very good the insurance company will say it's a no go.

This is completely unacceptable! Let's raise our voices against the frustration of being denied this new technology which can be crucial in helping us avoid complications! Join us on July 1st when we send a message to the insurance companies!

  1. Hi Karen! I'm Liz R from the SockKAL5. I'm currently hypoglycemic (autoimmune) and insulin resistant. It's utterly ridiculous how much control these for-profit insurance companies have in our lives! I've got lupus and other related diseases and I've been turned down repeatedly for meds that are $$$$ but would help me so much.

    Hang in there; Bush is almost out of office and I hope there will be a big change in how our healthcare is administered. My mantra? 1-20-09~!


Thanks for your comment!
