Just an FYI, it is actually not legal to sell your insulin pump, certainly not on TuD - I can point you to the rule for that
I can find no real “requirement” in Medicare that you must have your A1c tested every three months. In fact, Medicare offers coverage for 2 tests but does not “require” them. Your doctor should show you this guideline so that you can share it with us!
Some practices and some insurance may have their own requirements, I had a pcp once who suggested that I had to get my A1c tested to get my insulin RX…claiming it was the law. I fired that practice.
I get my A1c and all labs done once a year with a check up for my entire body and conditions. The only time I go back is if I am sick (and I mean dying), or broke something. One physical a year is covered but there is no “requirement” that I must have the physical. Admittedly the doc wants to see me to make sure my RX’s don’t need to change and are met according to my condition labs.
Diabetics seem to also ride on dark age rules, regulations, and requirements many that don’t even exist anymore or even ever. When an r-word is claimed before I can get what I need to get out and get to work I ask for the proof. I also let my providers know that my coverages don’t comply with their claim so if I am “required” to get a blood draw every three months I am not going to pay for it.
Can someone please show this requirement from Medicare? I see it presented all the time but have never been able to find it.
