The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) yesterday published the LCD modifying coverage criteria for continuous glucose monitors (CGMs). The modification includes people with diabetes who receive insulin treatment or have a history of problematic hypoglycemia.
Abbott and Dexcom both develop market-leading CGMs. The Dexcom G7 recently launched outside the U.S. and the company hopes for FDA clearance early next year. Meanwhile, Abbott recently announced positive data backing its FreeStyle Libre 2 system.
