Thursday’s Daily Piece: Diabetes Technology Update – Expanded Coverage and Age Indication, and New Option

I absolutely love diabetes technology and feel strongly that all persons with diabetes should have access CGM as well as when on basal bolus insulin regimen access to insulin pump. Some good news this week with regards to a new system, and expanded indication and coverage.

  1. MiniMed 770G system, Medtronic’s latest hybrid closed loop system is now FDA approved for ages 2 and older.

2. FDA has expanded age indication for Freestyle Libre 2 as the system is now approved for ages 4 and older.

3. Medicare has expanded coverage for Freestyle Libre 2, an integrated CGM system. For more details, please click below.
