SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 27, 2020--
DexCom, Inc. (NASDAQ:DXCM), the leader in continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems for people with diabetes, announced today a new patient assistance program to aid current U.S. customers who have lost insurance due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Enroll eligible customers in the program during the COVID-19 pandemic
Provide two 90-day supply shipments of Dexcom CGM system supplies, with each shipment including one transmitter and three boxes of three sensors
Reduce customer cost to $45 per 90-day supply shipment

The Dexcom COVID-19 patient assistance program will be available to current U.S. customers who have lost insurance coverage as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
