Hi everyone. I rarely post on here, but i am so frustrated right now I could choke someone!
I have been on the same policy with BCBS for a few years. I had always gotten pods directly from Omnipod. Then BCBS got into a dispute with Omnipod last year. My last two shipments from Omnipod were never paid by insurance cause BCBS refused. So then I was told to start using a local supplier, which I have been doing since the beginning of this year.
Last week I went to get more pods, and the local supplier told me that BCBS has decided I no longer "qualify" to be on a pump (since some directive of theirs that goes back to the first of the year) because my A1C is below 7.0.
This is all extrememly frustrating but it gets worse! I will be on United Healthcare starting Sept 1, and they only deal directly with Omnipod.
Does anyone know, since I have a huge balance with Omnipod from last year, if they will still let me get pods?
I really don't want to go back on shots...
I hate insurance.
