I just received notification that my insurer will require prior authorization for Dexcom / CGM usage ON AN ANNUAL BASIS starting January 1, 2022. I realize there are lots of things to get frustrated about in our lives today, but I am really steaming at this new requirement. I could maybe see prior authorization to show that you are type 1 or type 2 requiring CGM ONE TIME, but what a damn waste of time, money, and resources for me, my physician, AND my insurer. What’s their goal here?
What would be an appropriate public awareness campaign? Would it make sense to tweet @ BCBSMA as well as the administrator signing the letter? I realize this is probably a losing battle, but I’d like to do something that feels like I’m taking back a bit of control and at least educating others on this lunacy. Thanks for your thoughts - Jessica
