EVALUATION PRODUCT – SAMPLE ONLY (10 DAYS OF SUPPLIES FOR COMPATIBLE† SMART DEVICE USERS AND/OR USERS OF AN FDA-CLEARED AUTOMATED INSULIN DOSING SYSTEM)
PURPOSE: The Dexcom G6 Continuous Glucose Monitoring (“CGM”) System (“Dexcom G6”) can be provided free of charge for the sole purpose of allowing a healthcare provider and/or patient to evaluate whether Dexcom G6 is right for the patient. The Dexcom G6 is cleared by the FDA for use with a separate piece of durable medical equipment called a receiver. This pack includes one (1) Dexcom G6 sensor and one (1) transmitter and does not include a dedicated receiver. In the event the patient’s treating healthcare provider, in their independent clinical judgment, determines that the Dexcom receiver is medically necessary for their patient during the limited evaluation period, the receiver can be separately purchased from Dexcom. Accordingly, the treating healthcare provider should exercise their clinical judgment, in consideration of the Dexcom G6 Instructions for Use, to only dispense this pack to a patient who (or whose authorized caregiver) (i) has reliable access to a compatible smart device† and/or automated insulin delivery system, and (ii) is capable of safely using the products in this pack with their smart device, without the need for a separate dedicated receiver. Please note that if the end user of this pack is a Medicare beneficiary and the individual elects to continue using Dexcom G6 after this sample, the individual will need to obtain a medically necessary Dexcom receiver in order for Medicare coverage to be available.
