I’m really stoked about getting an Omnipod, but I’ve got to wait until July 2010 (that seems forever away!), because I got my Minimed pump in 2006, so it hasn’t been a full 4 years yet.
I’m trying to do as much research as possible between now and then so that my parents don’t have to do quite as much work like they did in the past. I’m 18 now, so I feel like I should be pulling my weight, too.
Anyway, we’ve got Kaiser Permanente for our insurance and healthcare and all that. If anyone else uses Kaiser, is there anything we should know about dealing with them? I know when I wanted to the the CGM, we met some resistance with getting that covered, so I decided it wasn’t worth all that effort, and they’re so expensive without insurance.
And of course I’ll talk to my doctors and parents and everyone I can think of before making the switch, but I’d love to get your opinions and tips too. Thanks!
