According to the recent earnings conf call, the Medicare billing is not on hold and (as of the conf call) have sent out Medicare orders to patients as well as submitted the billing to Medicare. Dexcom is continuing to process Medicare orders but are being cautious until they actually receive reimbursement at which point they will ramp up.
I really do not think Dexcom would be allowed under existing Federal law to accept payment from you. Once they know you are Medicare eligible then I do believe that is not something which can be reversed. But you should still be able to go through a non-Medicare distributor as a cash paying customer so as to be able to achieve the same results.
Q2 2017 DexCom Inc Earnings Call
Tuesday, August 1, 2017 at 8:30:00pm GMT
"Last month, we initiated our first shipments of the therapeutic CGM bundle to initial group of Medicare eligible patients. The timing of our Medicare rollout is tracking with expectations, and we are working through the implementation process to ensure we put the right pieces in place to support the billing and fulfillment activities. This is a complicated endeavor and will take time to scale up. Assuming our initial reimbursement claims are successfully adjudicated, we will roll out our Medicare program more aggressively over the course of the second half of the year. The response to Medicare coverage in the field continues to be amazing, and our expanded field team is attempting to manage the significant demand we have experienced, along with customer expectations. By the end of the second quarter, we had approximately 20,000 new Medicare eligible patients in our pipeline, and we reminded you that we have not yet started to promote availability to this segment of the population."
