Arming Your Endo With Information: Uploading To CareLink
As an Endocrinologist it’s important for me to have as much information as possible when I meet with a patient and their family. That’s why CareLink is so important to me in my practice. It gives me more detailed information than blood work or what my patients typically volunteer. It shows me trends, patterns, and actually guides me on what questions to ask my patients, so we can make the most of our visit together. Here are some things to consider before your next Endo visit.

Roy, as of June, we have made great progress with 7 Senators and 42 House Members co-sponsoring the bill, but we still need everyone to help co-sponsor the bill. You can read more about this latest update here: http://www.loop-blog.com/medicare-cgm-access-act-2015-next-step-reach-goal/.
Hi Sara Tilleskjor,
Please give an up todate report on what is going on with the 2015bills in congress,
(HR 1427 and S804. Understanding how inportant this issue is and the time to get things done in Congress there must be a means to press for approval to cover the CGM this year.
Time is is inportant to people waiting for the CGM. to be covered by Medicare / HealthCare Insurance.
Time is running out for congress to act now and approve the CGM system for
Medicare / health insurance coverage.
Medicare leaving seniors vulnerable. Continuous Glucose Monitor System (CGM).
Many people who are diabetic are benefiting daily from tighter glucose control reached with the help of a Continuous Glucose Monitor System (CGM).
There is a great need to have Preventive medical care for many diabetics on
Medicare. Diabetics who experience sudden hypo and or hyper glucose events must
have the Continuous Glucose Monitor System (CGM) to better manage and prevent
hypo and or hypre events and costly hospital stays..
Too many people are NOT benefiting from the CGM system because Medicare can not
and has not made a decision to cover the continuous glucose montoring system in
nearly two years leaving seniors vulnerable.
The CGM system is expensive however,it’s annual cost is low when measured
against the cost of one ER or hospital stay due to a serious low and or high
blood glucose event.
This year 2015 Congress has two like bills HR 1427 and S 804. So far there has
been no action for approval by congress.
We need Help to have congress take action and change the Social Security
language and move Medicare to approve coverage of the CGM system for health care
insuranc companies to provide coverage. Time is is inportant to people waiting for the CGM. to be covered by Medicare / HealthCare Insurance.
Preventive medical care should be the cornersyone policy for all health care
insurance here in America.
Thnk you for all you do.
