I’ve been coasting along with my Diabetes care for quite a while, not worrying too much about my Dexcom G6 costs because I’ve been able to successfully restart my sensors. However, restarting has not been successful for the last two. That, coupled with the outrageous cost of the transmitters caused me to take a hard look at the actual charges. It’s insane! My insurance requires me to get one transmitter at a time and the allowed billable cost is $590 every three months. The allowed cost for three months of sensors is $1180. Although my out of pocket cost after my $1000 deductible is paid is only 20% of the billed amount, it’s a tough pill to swallow! (Oh, if only we could just take a pill for this.)
Does anyone know how the Libre cost compares? I don’t really want to give up Dex, but if the price is right and my insurance will cover it, I might be ready to make the jump at the end of the year.
Thanks for any insights!
