So I spent the morning on the phone with my insurance company trying to decipher some changes made to my policy recently.
What I found out is that they are now adding insulin to the diabetic coverage section of the policy. Meaning I can now get my insulin 100% covered instead of my normal copay. At this point, When I figure out & switch to all the preferred brands, the only supplies they won't cover are my pump supplies.
This has me thinking. I absolutely love my pump & am intimidated by the thought of going back to MDI, but if I were to switch I'd get all my supplies free. (with the exception of the monthly insurance premium.) I've got a bit of debt at the moment, so even a short-term switch would help me to play catch-up on my bills.
I've learned a lot since switching to a pump 6.5 years ago & I think I could manage MDI much better now than I did before but I'm still nervous at the thought.
I should also mention that I have about 1 month's worth of pump supplies left & will have difficulty making the payment required to release a new shipment.
Has anybody else been in this situation? What would you do? Any tips for a smooth transition?
Thanks in advance. :)
