I just discovered this app and it's really cool. Question for everyone- a while back I tried out the dexcom cgm and loved it until I found out the cost. Is it worth the price tag?

Hi**** welcome! I LOVE my Dexcom and find it super beneficial, if you can afford it without going broke, YES, it's absolutely worth the price tag in my opinion

You can get a letter of medical necessity from your endo and submit to your insurance company. It might help get some coverage.
