American diabetics fight for continuous glucose monitoring system

A group of people with diabetes in America has launched a new campaign to help persuade insurance companies to allow claims for continuous glucose monitoring systems (CGMS).
The online rally was organised by Diabetes Talkfest, in association with online diabetes community Tudiabetes.com. The CGMS Denial Day attempted to raise awareness that insurance companies are denying people with diabetes who claim for CGMS.
The founder of diabetestalkfest.com, Gina Capone, reportedly commented: “After a recent week-long trial with a CGMS, during which time my blood sugars were significantly better, I was once again denied by my health insurance provider. This problem isn’t going away and neither are we. And this petition is going to let health insurance companies know we are going to continue this fight. We have come together as a community and will continue to raise our voices until we are heard.”
