"I have the 7+ transmitter and reciever still from 2012 when I went on the G4. I put the plungers with my syringes in a sharps container.I totally agree Dezcom needs to step up. You seem like a very active type person...why don't you start a…"

"I am actually still using my original receiver. I am simply holding on to the original (now dead) transmitter. (I got a new system.) I am also hanging onto all the sensor plungers. I don't think those should be thrown away in recycle containers…"

"It is a shame that they (Dexcom) do nothing to help. I am sure there are many 3rd world places where these would be a Godsend. Especially since they can be altered and recharged and continue to do service. Our FDA would not approve that but the…"

old transmitter and receiver disposal?

What does everyone do with their old/used transmitters and receivers? I just had to order a new transmitter and was wondering what to do with the old one. I still have my 7+ system sitting in a drawer because I don't know what to do with it.See More

"Insurance companies are for-profit businesses. They are not in business to "take care of their customers" any more than Dexcom or Wal-Mart. The insurance business in its entirety is at least as evil as any other business."

"Such is life with healthcare in the US. I recently had blood work done - coded as 4 or 5 different tests. The "price" was listed as nearly $600. The cost to my insurance company was about $60. My 10% copay was about $6. Healthcare…"

"Your pic displays the billed amount which is usually a high amount which has nothing to do with the actual paid amount by the insurance company. The actual paid amount varies depending on the agreement with the insurance company, in my case it was…"

Jeff Dempsey replied to Mary's discussion 'Transmitter replacement cost' in the group Dexcom Users
"You mean these technologies that we have been clamoring for, and Dexcom had to: 1. Invent it at risk to the company and investors 2. Get it through the testing process, so no one would be harmed by the technology, and it did what they intended it to…"

"Please excuse me interrupting but I just saw your insurance claim and am staggered by the mark-up! I have to self-fund G4 in UK as it's not available on our NHS yet but paid the equivalent of under $2,000 for exactly the same as you have…"

"Glad to hear that Mary! Well, I often wondered about that same thing when it comes to insurance. But, the problem really isn't the insurance company, it's the manufactures that set these outrageous prices for these technologies. Insurances…"

"I spoke with my rep and found out that since I got my 7+ in September everything will be covered under my old contract. My cost for a new transmitter will be around $35. I guess it all depends on your insurance.When are they going to realize that…"

"Its ridiculous on how much I have to pay up front. I wrote about it in the post I made. I emailed my rep to see if we can start over how much will it be."

"OMG!!! They don't have some kind of patient assistance program or something? That's like having no insurance at all @ those rates."
