A CGM Expert Interview With Davida F. Kruger, MSN, APN-BC, BC-ADM

As part of a new series of video resources hosted on ManagedCareCGM.com, Davida F. Kruger, MSN, APN-BC, BC-ADM, Certified Nurse Practitioner at Henry Ford Health System (HFHS)/Health Alliance Plan (HAP), offers her insights on progressive approaches to diabetes coverage and management. She shares HFHS/HAP’s experience in moving continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) from the durable medical equipment (DME) benefit to pharmacy coverage, demonstrating substantial cost savings at the plan level and enhanced access among patients with diabetes who are prescribed any insulin or ≥3 non-insulin medications. Findings from the MOBILE study—on which Ms. Kruger served as an investigator/author—are also detailed, including the benefits associated with real-time CGM (rtCGM) in type 2 diabetes (T2D) for improving glycemic control and meeting quality measures; these findings were particularly noteworthy considering a racially and ethnically diverse study population representing traditionally underserved demographics of patients. A post hoc analysis from MOBILE is likewise discussed, along with its implications for using rtCGM to improve T2D management among Medicare beneficiaries.
