Tricare. I'm active duty in the U.S. Navy (for now at least), and the covered the entire Paradigm 722 system. I had seen and heard a lot of mixed comments about Tricare covering it, but they came through...
United Health Care Choice Plus through my employer AT&T. Not the best, not the worst. I didn't require any appeals. They covered it right away as well as my MedTronic pump. They do not however cover the OmniPod. And now I am locked in with the MedTronic pump for 4 years.
TriWest (TriCare) the military insurance...we had to jump through alot of hoops and give them lots of records, labs and two letters from my endo. They finally approved it (I have been on it 5 days now!!) I also told them I am thinking about gettting pregnant again. This is true and I think it might have helped alot.
i have an appointment with a new endo in may and am thinking of asking her for a CGM recommendation. i have keystone health plan east (POS with the university of pennsylvania health system network) in philadelphia. i haven't run into anybody with this plan, or even the keystone hmo, anyone out there?? thanks in advance!
I'm in process of my 2ND appeal. The general public will be informed of the CGM and a notable personality will push for acceptance before the CGM is widely accepted by Insurance Co's.
They must be convinced paying for this hardware is, in the long run, profitable.
A press release submitted to your local paper is always a wecome thing, to these papers, who have many days of problems filling space. Must simply contact a journalist (s) first and talk him/her into letting you send your press release to their desk. Trust me, no big deal.
