 I have an appointment with my CDE on the 23rd. If I haven't been able to set up
anything with Minimed by then I'll ask if she can do it. It does seem a little
confusing at first because I know you have to wait a certain time after
inserting it to calibrate it and then you have to do it again with X hours. I
don't really know how my insurance will cover the sensors. I'm told they do
cover the ongoing supplies. I got 1 box of 10 sensors with my shipment, but I
got the usual 3 months of sets/reservoirs. I'm not sure if I'll get the sensors
1 month at a time or if future shipments will be for 3 months. Even with
insurance coverage I'd feel better about using them longer if it's still working
past the 3 days.
