I have a $3,500 deductible with a government Marketplace insurance. (Obamacare). Premiums are $240 p/m. I use Omni Pods and love them. CCS is the distributor that sends me the pods every month. However, I am only billed for the pods every quarter. It is about $380 or so, varies a little each time as the deductible goes down. In the end, with a $3,5000 deductible I am only getting one month paid for by the insurance company.
I have not been able to find any work around to get help with these expenses. It’s terrible. The only bright light is that Insulet was kind enough to help by sending me a few free pods while I was trying to get insurance lined out. Insulet is a great corporation but pods are not cheap. Nor, insulin as you know.
Unless this current congress is willing to do something with our healthcare situation and not use it as a personal political tool (and it doesn’t look like they ever will), it looks like people who have insurance through the government and use insulin pumps and pods will eventually have to revert to multiple injections again.
Wish I could help, knew of something you could do. Check with Insulet, your insurance company, healthcare clinic, pharmacy, etc. to see if any of them have programs you are eligible for to help defray costs.
