How will the upgrade be accomplished?
My understanding is that there will be no upgrade.
Awesome. Thanks for posting!
So how does this work if we want to switch? We contact insurance for approval first? Or Dexcom? Or is this a different process for everyone . . .
ok I just called Dexcom. I'm not due for upgrade until December. I was told I could pay $399 to upgrade now. They said the units should begin shipping in late October.
Yea! I'm due for a new unit in November or December
This is awesome....I just sent my paperwork in this AM. The new receiver looks great and the distance is up to 25 feet for continuous readings. Sensor is slightly larger for increased distance on receiver but only in width. The new software platform looks much improved also.The biggest feature is the increased accuracy in terms of hypoglycemia. Will ship in late October so get your paperwork in now if you are eligible for a new unit. This sensor rocks!
I just looked at the videos and they look good! So I decided that money is there to be spent, not buried with me in my coffin, so I ordered one, even though I've just had the 7+ for less than 2 months. And I can easily wait until December, no problem. So let's see how we like it! :-)
I just got off the phone with Dexcom and the person I spoke with couldn't have been nicer, or more helpful! The way it works is that if your current Dex is out of warranty (1 year) - then you are eligible for an upgrade. Depending on what your insurance covers, will determine how much you pay. I was told that they are hoping to ship the first ones out on October 29th! Since my Seven plus is out of warranty, I am eligible!!!! I am (just a little excited).
