I had a surprise recently, after getting my first prescription for Novolog filled. I had done some reading here and on Medicare’s website (which, immho, contradicts itself as to what it does and does not cover) about insulin coverage, and had gotten some advice from my CDE and my doctor’s office.
I have an insulin pump, have had for years, and I thought Medicare would cover insulin under Part B. Well, surprise, surprise. If you have a Medicare Advantage HMO, Medicare doesn’t cover insulin. Neither my pharmacy nor my insurance company could explain it.
Before I try getting in touch with Medicare, has anyone else had this happen to them, and if so, could you shed any light?
