I'm using my Enlite Sensors with my Revel Pump and I get way better CGM results now than I did using Sof-Sensors! I am not paying $700 for an upgrade to the 530G when I can do the same thing with my Revel and the only upgrade is really the Threshold Suspend and the sensor timer set to 6 days... I don't mine resetting my sensor every three days and I think I'm really good at managing my lows... It's highs I have issues with.

Great news, thanks!
I am soo tired of the FDA just dragging things along and refusing to consider anything the least bit creative. Good for you.

I'm glad I saw your comment. I've wanted to make your switch, but the website says the new sensor is not compatible with my pump (which has another year and a half to go on its warranty). Like you I don't have issues with lows that make the pump shut off important. What I would like is a more reliable and accurate sensor.

Does your insurance cover your use of the new sensor with your old pump?
Yes, my insurance does cover the Enlite sensors. When Medtronic submits authorization for sensors, they don't submit for any particular sensor. They just submit for a sensor. What matters is the perscription from the doctor. What my doctor did was write a pad prescription and faxed it to Medtronic.
That's simple enough. Thanks!

Just love it!
Unfortunately, I had a HDHP, through my employer but, with the onset of Obamacare, their plan had to change, and now I am forced onto Medicare. What a joke! They are the biggest deniers of all things medical. They don't cover sensors, so my supplemental insurance won't pay the 'overage'; now I am so screwed. If there's anyone who has figured a way to get Medicare to cover them, or even a portion of the cost, I'd love to hear from you.
