Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM)

Dexcom G7 and FreeStyle Libre Medicare Provider illinois

Hayat Home Medical Equipment expanded its product line to include continuous glucose monitors in 2019.

As a local DME, Hayat's ability to work closely with the physicians of illinois offices to streamline the process in delivery of the Freestyle Libre or Dexcom CGM products to Medicare patients is a relief in comparison to pharmacy benefits which can be very costly as CGM is a DME benefit. Our team will navigate with the patient to ensure that the receiver and sensors are delivered to patient's home in a timely manner. Moreover, our office will be in contact with you on a monthly basis for re-order of sensors 5-7 days before your sensor expires in order to ensure that your ability to monitor your glucose levels is constant.
