Does anyone know of how much the Dexcom CGM cost, along with approximate monthly supplies?? I need one really bad and I don't think my insurance will cover it. Thanks

I have that same one that I no longer use. If you call Medtronics they can give you a cash price and if you want the supplies that I have we may be able to negotiate something. I can be reached at (903)240-####

You can get the unit for about $700 then supplies are an additional $215 per month.

Check with your insurance company. You may be surprised. Also, check with various online medical supply stories. Their prices vary a lot. We now use Diabetes Supply Center. We also cover our transmitter site with 3M Tegaderm Film we get off Amazon. It holds the site in place an extra 2 weeks.

Definitely call you insurance. I have BCBSTX and they required a pre-authorization from my doctor. It was only $150 for the Dexcom CGM and then $50 a month....but every insurance/plan is different
