I’m participating in a research study with Stanford University called “The Overcoming Barriers and Obstacles to Adopting Diabetes Devices (ONBOARD).” This study investigates barriers to CGM uptake in adults with type 1 diabetes (https://onboardstudy.stanford.edu/). The study provides a free, 3-month sensor supply.
I’m beginning the process of getting a prescription from my endocrinologist to continue using the Libre2 system once the 3-month supply ends. I have private insurance.
If you use the Libre2 system & use private insurance, how do you access supplies? Do you get them from a local pharmacy? Order from a medical supplier such as Edgepark Medical Supplies (https://my.edgepark.com/diabetes), A Plus Medical Supply (https://www.aplusmedicalsupply.com/), etc.?
I spoke with a customer service representative at Abbott today, and they weren’t able to help me navigate my insurance benefits.
Thanks so much for your help!
