    Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM), insulin pumps, and automated insulin administration are all examples of advances in diabetes technology that can help type 1 diabetes patients improve their glycemic control (T1D). However, diabetes technology utilization is lower in kids with government insurance, and this difference is rising in the United States. Effective treatments and policies to promote fair care are desperately needed. The following are the two goals of this case series: (1) Describe how the CGM Time in Range Program (CGM TIPs) helped children on public insurance overcome challenges to CGM and deliver asynchronous remote glucose monitoring, and (2) advocate for better CGM coverage by public insurance. We explain how six young people with T1D who had public insurance were able to receive and maintain CGM with the help of the program. Three juveniles were able to utilize pers.. View More»
