Hi Mark -
Have you tried in the last few weeks? I just talked with my MM rep last week, and he has had several people covered by Blue Cross and others (dependent on their plan’s DME yearly cap). Mine is apparently $5000 per year with my husband’s insurance… it is worth checking back with them again! It sounds as if they (insurance companies) may be loosening up a bit as more results are received.
I should be getting my new pump in a couple of weeks, along with the CGM. I was ready to accept the offer from my diabetes specialist to use the CGM “on loan”/prescription, for 3 days at a time, if it ended up not being covered… have you tried this option?
Anyway, I am looking forward to receiving the new pump - my fourth (or fifth?) over the years. The CGM will be wonderful, as well. (Gosh, I still remember being excited over infusion sets that could be released for a shower instead of doing a dance around the ‘pump-in-a-bag’!) I hope you are able to get yours soon, as well! Keep us posted!
