I do not hate this pump, nor have I ever complained about it. My only bad experience is with the battery. I’ll charge the battery to 100% and 2 hours later I’m down to 80%. This is not normal, I’ve had three of them behave like this. I might just stop using the pump with the G5 and just use my phone as the receiver.
Laddie, I was reading a huge subreddit about the Medicare and Dexcom rule. Others in your situation who are on Medicare and using the G5 in which Medicare didn’t pay for with your phone as the receiver are going to run into problems down the line. Dexcom is even advising everyone on Medicare to stop using their smartphones no matter if Medicare paid for supplies or not. Seems, that these folks are going to get caught in a vicious circle between Medicare and Dexcom. Dexcom is so afraid of being audited by Medicare, that they are not going to jeopardize their contract, so they will report their patients to Medicare for violations of this rule. I’m sure we’ll hear of people being denied coverage in the next few months for not following the rules.
