I have been using the OmniPod insulin delivery system for almost four years. It has greatly improved my management of my Type 1 diabetes. I turned 65 in January and received a rejection from Medicare for coverage of the OmniPod delivery system. I filed my first appeal for reconsideration and received notification that it was declined because the OmniPod insulin delivery system is considered a "convenience"!!!!
I will continue the appeal process and won't give up until all avenues have been exhausted.
I would appreciate any information from OmniPod users on Medicare who have successfully appealed to Medicare and are now getting coverage for the OmniPod system.
