Finally, FINALLY, I’m going to be able to get the Omnipod!
It’s been quite a struggle with my insurance company because Kaiser Permanante only approves the Pod on a case-by-case basis. But I got the call today from EdgePark, and I’ve been approved! And I’ll have 100% coverage which is awesome.
I still have a few questions, and I suppose I’ll need to find an Omnipod rep/trainer in my area to get started once I get it. Is that something I need to call Insulet about? I’m going to college out of state, so I’d like to find someone local, since the rep back home is so far.
Also, I’m not entirely sure (and I’ll ask edgepark tomorrow) but if the Omnipod itself is 100% covered, that means the pods will be too, right? I assumed so earlier on in the process, but now I want to make totally sure, because they can get expensive.
And finally I just wanted to thank everyone here on Tudiabetes for all their support and for answering all my questions about the Omnipod throughout this extremely long process! Y’all are the best!
