I’m on MDI (humalog and basaglar) and I’m thinking of switching to the pump in a month or two. Is it worth reordering humalog pens and basaglar pens before getting the pump so I have a backup just in case I am traveling or decide to take a pump break?
For those of you who have pumps, what kind of backups does your insurance cover? I haven’t used insulin/syringe in 20 years, so my preference is to get the pens before switching to the pump in case insurance will only cover vials as a backup later.
I have Cigna if that matters.
Also, there’s a chance my insurance might change soon - does anyone know if I start with a t-slim now and change insurances, will a future insurance company cover supplies if I already have the pump itself?
