I got my dexcom 7+ back in August With a 90 day supply of sensors. I just received the bill yesterday and was looking it over and see where I got billed for 84 sensors. Has anyone else had this problem?

Just got my first bill yesterday for sensors and it was for 3 boxes for 3 months.

I only got the 3 boxes which would be 12 sensors. The bill from Carecentrix says i'm billed for 84. I emailed them yesterday; but they only work Monday - Thursday. The price per unit on my bill says they are $10.84 each. By what i've read from comments on here I thought the unit price was around $80.00 each. It is starting to look like the 84 is how many days worth I have. 12 sensors Times 7 days for each sensor equals 84 days. If this is what they did this sure is a screwed up way to do billing.

I just got my bill the other day for sensors it was the same as pup's it was for 3 boxes of 4 sensors each for a total of 12 sensors. Each box was $499.00 with $108.00 insurance adjustment for a total of $391.00 per box of 4 so the bill for the sensors alone was $1173.00

Clare did you have the 7+ before the G4? Looks like the G4 sensors are a lot more expensive.

How much were you billed? I was told the G4 sensors are about the same price as the 7+ - £62.50 plus postage in the UK so just over $100 in US? Are Dexcom selling off their remaining stock of 7+ sensors on the cheap?

I was billed $909.94 for the sensors; but this is for the 7+. Unfortunately I ordered mine a few weeks before the G4 came out.

No this is my first experience with CGM and I have to say so far I am impressed. And you're right the sensors are very expensive, but since insurance is picking up the entire cost, I am very lucky.

Lucky you for the insurance company picking up everything.

I am definitely a very lucky D
