I am beyond thrilled that Medicare has removed the requirement of testing glucose four times daily for Medicare beneficiaries to qualify for CGM. This requirement has been a burden for many and created a barrier for access to CGM. Medicare will continue at this time to require Medicare beneficiaries to be on a basal bolus insulin regimen to qualify for CGM. Additionally, a c-peptide and fasting glucose level is often required prior to approval of CGM.
