I am part of the Welcome Committee and was just checking in on you to make sure you are aware of all that TuDiabetes has to offer. We would love to hear from you so here is a helpful link where you can read about all the things you can do in the community.

I look forward to hearing from you again soon.

i dont recall if i replied...i havent been on in a while. REgarding Aetna PPO cgm coverage. i have been approved for the receiver and sensors...they gave me 6 refills approved at 90%---the aetna bargained price for me,my out of pocket expense, for 4 sensors...$28. in Feb 09 they will reevaluate.

Being Hypo-unaware is the magic ticket. You have to get your dr to write a letter explaining the complexities of your case. I think wide fulctuations in BS is also a possiblity to get covered under.

I advise, continuing your appeal, but also, contact Aetna Pre-Auth Department. They are the ones that approve for future purchases and send the info to DEX or MM. Then you never pay in full up front.
