Is Dexcom covered by Medicare?

Does Medicare cover Dexcom G6 and Dexcom G7?

Yes. The Dexcom G6 and Dexcom G7 are covered by Medicare if you meet their criteria. Dexcom now ships Dexcom G6 and Dexcom G7 to Medicare patients with traditional fee-for-service coverage.

You can get Medicare coverage for therapeutic CGM if you:

• Have type 1 or type 2 diabetes,

• Use insulin (any kind)

• Don’t use insulin but have had certain low blood sugar events

Medicare recently updated its coverage requirements for CGM. For a full description of coverage criteria, Click HERE.

Reach out to your Distributor with any questions about the specifics of the Medicare coverage requirements for Dexcom CGM.

I am a current G6 user, how do I upgrade to Dexcom G7?

If you are a current G6 patient, contact your distributor. Your distributor will request a prescription for Dexcom G7 from your doctor and provide you with pricing and upgrade options. If you currently use Dexcom G6 with a connected insulin pump, we recommend continuing it until Dexcom G7 adds compatibility with your pump or pen. We're working with our insulin delivery partners to integrate with Dexcom G7 as soon as possible. Keep reading >
