To: all health insurance providers,
The continuous glucose monitoring system (hereinafter CGMS) has been found to be an effective tool to detect impending hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia in patients before a crisis situation occurs. This technology is available today and has the ability to increase the quality of life of patients with diabetes. Every patient and physician team should have the ability to determine which persons are most likely to benefit from the use of the latest technology. I implore you to cease denying coverage for financial reasons under the guise that CGMS is "experimental". CGMS is no longer experimental and has received FDA approval after extensive research on the products.
I am signing my name, providing my email address, providing comments regarding why I support this petition and am also indicating in which state I reside. As a person who has been refused access, I am also indicating which insurance company has unfairly denied me the coverage for this life saving tool for treatment of my diabetes.
Even if I have not been directly affected by diabetes or CGMS denial, I am signing this petition as an indication of my support for patients with diabetes to be given the opportunity through insurance coverage, to improve the quality of their lives with CGMS technology.
