I have buying Dexcom supplies from PumpsIt, but I want to switch to another company. Their renewal system is completely unautomated: I have to call, leave a message, get a call back, wait for my order, etc. I suppose you could say this is nice because it's personalized, but it just feels ridiculously inefficient to me. In addition, the thing that really bugs me is that they *never* send a receipt with my order. I *always* have to make yet another phone call to request a receipt. I have asked repeatedly for them to make a note for a receipt to be included in my box, but it's never there. That's just stupid. Where are you buying your sensor supplies in the US?
Hi Carb 101,
I am wondering if the sensors are less expensive where you are currently buying them. I get mine through Dex and it is really effortless! They have four or five options of how you want them automatically delivered. I choose to get one box of four every month. The only time I need to do anything is once a year- sign up for the following year's deliveries.
Hope this helps!
I have good insurance, but without it, they are about $90 each, is what I believe I was told. I'm surprised you can buy directly from Dexcom. I think we were trained by a Dexcom rep (I sure thought she was from Dexcom), and she set us up with PumpsIt. You know, I bet that was like a loyalty reward because PumpsIt chased after our insurance until they agreed to pay.
I got my Dexcom directly through Dexcom. At that time my insurance wouldn't cover it, so I paid. Someone at Dexcom suggested that I go through Pumpsit for the sensors, saying that Pumpsit folks were more used to working with insurance companies and maybe they could get the sensors covered.
https://www.edgepark.com/ is all I know.
If your insurance coverage for sensors is part of a Pharmacy benefit, then Foundation Care is an option. They have been very easy to work with.
When they process my order, it is direct shipped from Dexcom, but FC always sends me the receipt separately, w/o any problem.
I guess I am really fortunate, My insurance (Blue Shield) covers the entire bit. And, they acknowledge Dex - which makes ordering really easy, as I stated earlier.
I gotta look into Blue Shield! I'm looking for new insurance now.
I just moved here to MN, this isn't good to hear.
I called BC/BS and was denied because I have diabetes.
I have BC/BS, and have always gotten dex stuff direct from Dexcom.
