After years of JDRF advocacy efforts, The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) classifies continuous glucose monitors (CGMs) as durable medical equipment, creating a pathway for their coverage by Medicare. However, CMS did not establish coverage criteria for CGM in their ruling, so Medicare coverage decisions will be made on a case-by-case or claim-by-claim basis based on a determination of whether CGM is “reasonable and necessary” for treatment of an individual’s T1D. The new classification is crucial for continued development of artificial pancreas systems, most of which incorporate CGMs.
