    I know that most insurance companies will pay for a new pump after four years (following the expiration of the warranty). Does anyone know how often most insurance companies will pay for a new CGM? Considering Dexcom's warranty on its CGM is only 6 months, I'm thinking about getting a Dexcom for my son and then in a year or so trying out the Medtronic with its new sensors (if they ever get approved).

    I think what you have in mind is completely feasible.

    BUT, the Dexcom transmitter is warrentied for 6 months but the receiver is a year. SO, you might have to hold out the whole year at the worst.

    I don't know what most insurance companies do, but ours will pay for a new receiver/transmitter after the warranty period is up. Six months for the transmitter and a year for the receiver (both Dex and MM).
