My appeal to BCGSIL for a Dexcom was approved today!
Little known fact.....The CPT code for the sensors (A9276) was approved for payment for all BCBSIL members on 3/1/09. So I put in an appeal on 3/4/09 and was flatly denied on 3/6/09!
Now I'm mad - how can they deny this when one of the three codes is now approved for payment?! I put together another appeal letter and received written confirmation that it was received on 3/9/09.
This morning I received a call that it was APPROVED - YES!!
