(Kennyg) #1

Anyone have any new updates on when Guardian3 Sensors are going to be approved.
Thank you!

@kennyg, this is third hand information.
A member of the Medalist Group sat next to a Medtronic representative on a recent flight and after she told him that she had just dropped Medtronic pumps, after having used them for 27 years, in favor of the t-Slim she gave him the reason because Medicare didn’t cover Medtronic CGM. His response, “Medtronic is working on that”.
I had previously heard - I have not been able to verify this - that CMS has not received a request from Medtronic.
