Kelly Love replied to Amy's discussion 'In order for medicaid to pay for the G4, I have to go through a test' in the group Dexcom Users
"Amy, just a quick FYI, I have NHP (MassHealth) and they are covering 100% of my CGM costs (just got my Dexcom in the mail today). I also go to Joslin, and I believe all my endo had to do was fill out a prior authorization form, BUT as a note, Dexcom…"
