I am officially dubbing July 1 as CGMS DENIAL DAY.

Me, along with many others are sick of being denied coverage for the CGMS. Join me on July 1 to raise our voices as a community.

If you have been denied coverage for the CGMS by your insurance company, Please make a post on your blog, personal website and or a video post wherever you are a community member on JULY 1, 2008 telling everyone how important the CGMS is for you to keep healthy.

In the subject line of ALL your posts please put:

This way we will have a way to keep track of everyone’s posts, and make our voices heard. I have created a logo leading up to the day if you would please pass it on WITH A LINK BACK TO this blog explaining what the day means.

I have also made a logo for JULY 1 to put up as well with your posts.

I am with you girl!! July 1st Den Day...will add it to my blog:)
Let's not settle for pricking our fingers 4-10 times a day, when there is a better solution for US! I bet if it were there kid, mother, sister or father they would fight back as well.

thanks you can also comment to my blog
I diff will do that afterwork. Can I add your blog to my blog as a link?
Thank you for this! This will be wonderful. We all raised our voices on Type 1 day! This is then next step. So people know we are here!
Great idea, Gina!! I got denied pretty quickly and didn't even bother to fight it-- I just paid out of pocket. Ugh, it makes me mad just thinking about it.
I will definitely use the logo & post something!
thanks katie!
Oh YEAH! How synchonistic! My deadline for my THIRD APPEAL is July 1st! Did you choose this date for me?

I've got the whole saga on the "Advice on insurance appeal please (teleconferencing in 3 days!)" on the discussion forum here...

Unfortunately, I don't have enough time to blog regularly (being a 'stressed out' graduate student with two dogs, two jobs and an outrageous love of life!), but this is a great promotion to, as you say, 'get somebody's attention'.

Thank you Gina :D I have to go work on my other projects...
I did! haha. Well if you cant blog you can put the Image up then?
Great idea, Gina. I don't have a blog or web site, but I'll watch for everyone's postings. My husband is in the process of appealing his denial. Hopefully thing will turn around soon, so people who need this technology can get it!
You can actually blog right here at tudiabetes there is a blog function on your MY PAGE
Brava, Gina! I have e-mail contacts all over the world, and will use your initiative and add a line or two about why this is so important. Great idea!
Thanks Olaf!
