I’m usually one to keep my T1 to myself until absolutely necessary to disclose, but a slightly sticky situation has arisen. I’ve gotten a job offer and if I accept, it will mean a move entirely across the country. Needless to say, it’s a huge decision. Among the factors to consider is the fact that the health insurance plan is self-funded by the employer and administered by UMR. The info given to me at this point does not include anything about DME. I use a pump and CGM and need to figure out if I’ll have any chance at having them covered.
So my question for the forum is whether, when I email my HR contact for more info do I let the cat out of the bag and specifically mention the pump and CGM or do I keep it general in asking about DME? My husband says go all the way, but it makes me nervous. I don’t want them to immediately regret hiring someone who may be seen as too expensive. I’d love insights from the wise TuD members.
UPDATE: I didn’t take the job. It was in Florida and as much as we would really like to make a move there at some point, this hurricane season has caused us great concern.
