Tricare CGM Policy Update for young kids


(Kgreiner) #1

Curious if anyone else has recently discovered, like myself, that Tricare did a policy update 04/01/17 that now states only children >7 are eligible for a CGM. Outrageous!! We’ve been using the Dexcom G5 since diagnosis (Jan 2016) for my 2.5 yr old and I can’t IMAGINE not having this available for over 4 more years without paying out of pocket. I’m obviously going to appeal, but wondering if anyone else is doing the same thing?

Thanks!
