Travel & TSA: express check line for CGM & supplies

When flying a couple of years ago I alerted TSA that I had a CGM and syringes and an insulin pen. The agent made a phone call and then invited me to go through the express check where they just scan your pocket contents and carryons, and claim them on the other side of the walk through body scanner.

Every time I have flown since I just check in with TSA and they direct me to the express check line.


@docslotnick, is there a special TSA desk at the airport somewhere, or do you just talk to the agent that checks your boarding pass and ID at the security line?

There is generally a TSA desk before you get to the scanning station. I haven’t flown much in the past five years, but in the few airports I’ve been to that’s where I’ve found them.
