Here's one thing in writing. It's an email I received from him with a link to create a letter and send it to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
The guy isn't a member of Congress. What do you suppose he should do? Obviously getting Medicare coverage would make the company more money. Of course Sullivan wants that. He's not going through each person's case one-by-one.
Are you saying he doesn't want Medicare coverage? That makes no sense.
And if you are instead saying he isn't doing enough, it may be because you don't have access to his calendar and aren't aware of his schedule. Just because it hasn't happened yet doesn't mean he is not trying.
Email from Sullivan:
We have exciting news to share with you! Recently, several prestigious organizations have joined our effort to ensure that people with diabetes don’t lose their access to the Omnipod® Insulin Management System once they are no longer covered by private insurance. These include:
+ American Diabetes Association
+ The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists
+ The American Association of Diabetes Educators
+ The Black Women's Health Imperative
+ The Endocrine Society
JOIN THE CAUSE!
The Omnipod® System has changed the lives of thousands of people living with diabetes. This unique tubeless insulin pump system was cleared by the FDA over 10 years ago and is still the only FDA-cleared insulin delivery device NOT reimbursed by Medicare.
As a result, many stand to lose access to the Omnipod® System when they transition from private health insurance and into Medicare. I’ve had constructive and promising conversations with Medicare officials recently about fixing this problem, which makes your voice and support at this time all the more important and helpful.
JUST TWO CLICKS CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
Now, with your help, we can make even greater strides in ensuring Medicare-eligible Podders™ keep their preferred insulin delivery system. I am asking you to act now and help your fellow members of the Podder™ Community by engaging your Members of Congress who serve on the committees that are most influential with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the federal agency responsible for Medicare.
