After all my years on Medicare i never knew that part"B" would cover my insulin. i have been relying on my endo to give me samples, b/c the Novolog is so damned expensive. i just received an info card from Liberty (an insurance company that works to provide assistance for pumpers) informing me that since i am on the pump, i can get my insulin through medicare part B. all i need is for my endo to write this info on my perscription. i hope this helps someone else. would love to know of any other "loopholes" you might know about.
This is a good website for finding out everything about your Medicare benefits, A, B and D.. Also, do a web search for the book "Medicare and You 2013. It is in PDF form and explains in simple terms the basics about Medicare and Medicare D benefits. There are a lot of things covered by B and in this book there is a chart in there describing your benefits.
It is also open enrollment time for Medicare D until December 7, a time that people can change plans to make sure they are getting the best deal on their Medicare D coverage. There is also Low Income Subsidy people can apply for if they need financial help with Medicare D due to having a lower income.
