I use CCS Medical for my insulin pump supplies and for the past year I have had minor problems with them. Now in the year 2018 they tell me that Medicare’s requirements for insulin pump infusion sets have changed. If I need to change infusion sets more than every 3 days, my doctor has to write that down in her chart notes.
I talked to doctor about this at my last visit in December 2017 and she complied and did write down that I need to change infusion sets every two days. However when I received my pump supply order a few days ago from CCS, they sent only enough to change every 3 days. Does anyone know what Medicare requires to be included in the chart notes specifically? My Doctor is a GP, I don’t have an Endocrinologist nor is there one available where I live.
