Omigod! I am sitting here hyperventilating. My wonderful new job has the WORST insurance I have ever seen. Medtronic has sat on its butt with my claim, and it looks like I will not get my pump under the old insurance plan which is very good. I need this pump to LIVE. I cannot just take injections due to my insulin allergies. I HAVE to have a pump and soon. I will not be able to afford it under this new insurance. It has a durable medical equipment limit of $2500 a year...not even enough for SUPPLIES for the pump! What the heck happens when I can't afford this thing? Even though I am working, I can't get the money I need that fast. My salary is high enough that I don't qualify for assistence, either. So now I have to quit my job to get insurance that will cover the pump. It takes time to get a new job, maybe more to qualify for insurance. I'm doomed! This might even kill me. My blood sugar is already in the 300s. I don't think I can wait the several months I will probably have to. Anyone know where I could go for help?
Yes, I am SCARED TO DEATH.
