"I changed insurance from Oxford to Aetna January 2014. Before changing insurance, I confirmed that Aetna covered Dexcom. In May, I ordered sensors. Edgepark first got pre-approval from Aetna, then shipped me. Aetna accepted the claim, reduced my…"

Isaac replied to Elizabeth's discussion 'Anyone not able to get their sensor to last more than 7-10 days?' in the group Dexcom Users
"Weight must have something to do with it. I used to get 2-3 weeks easy. Then all of a sudden even 7 days was a struggle, with ??? by day 5 or 6. I thought my transmitter battery must be dying, but tech support said no. I realized that I had gained…"

Isaac replied to LACA310's discussion 'Getting ??? on your G4 - Might be synthetic fabrics' in the group Dexcom Users
"Could a lot of ??? indicate transmitter battery dying? I have had the transmitter for 7 months, and in the last 3 weeks I have gotten a lot of ???, which I never did before. The status says battery is fine."

Isaac replied to SSD's discussion 'Use expired Dexcom G4 sensors?' in the group Dexcom Users
"I have used expired sensors often, since I get a 90 day supply, but it lasts me six to 9 months. I am sure that they put an expiration date that insures the sensors are good a few months after also. The enzyme on the sensor will eventually lose…"

Isaac replied to Amy's discussion 'Was going to use my sensor for a week 2 but....' in the group Dexcom Users
"These receivers fully charged last so many days, that I would not worry about shutting them down. Just stop sensor. I have very good insurance that covers my sensors fully, but I use them at least for two weeks. First reason is convenience. I…"
