Re: [IP] Medicare and CGM



Greg,
 
Medicare is US funded...via paid taxes.  Are you saying idf you moved  to 
another state you may possibly be eligible for CGM via medicare?  I'm  having 
an issue believing that's is true.

The  coverage of CGM by Medicare varies by state and its no covered  in

consistent in all states.   My CGM is an  Incredible  help, am SSDI and get
no assistance.  Its a difficult  life without it....mostly tryi g to find
deals or supplies old model users  have on hand
