Anyone from New York, I'm doing research to try to get the best coverage under Affordable Care Act. It's such a labyrinth. I feel like I'm playing coverage roulette.
Lost my previous insurance, which covered Omnipod. It was good, but RIDICULOUSLY expensive, so I'm glad to move on in that way.
I'm currently signed up for a policy with Empire BlueCross, and they don't cover the Omnipod test strips, but possibly the pod, if they accept the application from my doctor.
Don't know if they will.
1. Has anyone been successful getting coverage for the pod with an ACA policy? If so, I'd love to find out, I have until the 15th to switch to whatever plan is most likely to cover it.
2. My family is paying for this coverage. But as a musician (i.e. freelance, low income, etc) with a chronic disease, I qualify for Medicaid. Does anyone know if the omnipod is covered by Medicaid in NY?
I'm trying to decide whether to just switch to Medicaid, save my family some money and if there's a possibility of getting omnipod or at the very least, a decent pump coverage with medicaid, I might go for that.
Thanks in advance for any reply. If you have information, suggestions, leads, it's all appreciated..
