Since I use insulin in a pump, which Medicare considers Durable Medical Eqpt (DME), it’s billed as Medicare Part B, same as a pump is. I have Humana Medicare Advantage with Part D drugs. I’m ok with paying my 20% share of my insulin under Part B because I don’t get a vote. But I ALWAYS have trouble getting Humana to bill it correctly!
They ALWAYS begin the refill procedure billing it as Part D. Their software invariably tilts, they always tell me there’s a problem with my order, sometimes they even send me a letter saying I need a prior authorization for the refill before they’ll fill it and ship it. Invariably they get it right but they look so dumb! Once they even shipped it correctly and THEN I got the form letter saying I need the prior auth!
Does anyone know of a parts supplier that is also a pharmacy that I could get the insulin from as well as reservoirs, etc? That’d be dependent on Humana accepting them but it’d be something to consider if I knew who I might could use.
