I'm sending a shout out to all here who have encountered Edgepark Medical and the usurious/overpricing of their diabetes supplies! OMG I have been beside myself ever since this afternoon when I learned that my new insurance company is contracted with Edgepark for durable medical supplies, and - I kid you not - the same supplies I previously went through Animas (I doubt the brands(s) any of us use matters) to buy is listed at 65% to 67% OVER what the manufacturer charges!!!
This means my box of 10 Inset 30 infusion sets that Animas has a list price of $135.00 has an Edgepark Medical "catalog" price of $402.19! Every item at Edgepark is so overpriced I'm just sick.
How, in today's America, can a company get away with this? I have to pay my insurance 20% of the allowable - the contracted amount they have agreed upon with this company's (Edgepark's) usurious practices. If it works out to be more than the full Animas price of $135 I am simply not paying Edgepark.
There has to be an avenue of recourse to identify such injustice. I am floored! How can we band together to protect ourselves and loved ones from becoming victims of such unconscionable practices?
I've had a rough few weeks and this about sinks my ship.
I'm seeing Attorney Generals, etc in my future. I want to stand up to this with every fiber in my being!
Thank you for listening my friends. I hope my discussion doesn't get pulled.
One voice may not be powerful enough, but many might make the difference? Just want your thoughts.
