Is there anyone out there with kaiser insurance and using insulin pump?
My cousin has been using pen for 15 years ; Due to his parents job his insurance changed to kaiser recently and they don't cover pens! being a diabetic myself I know how hard is for an active teenage boy to carry vials and syringes with himself.
I was wondering if any one could ever get pens through kaiser insurance? I beleive there should be away to make them pay for it. any information is appreciated...
I was so hoping when I found this post that there would be an answer!
:-( I'm in the same boat- I NEED Kaiser to cover the Lantus pen for me and they will not. Their argument is that the pens are more expensive than vials. I've argued that in my low dose situation it would actually be less because I wouldnt need to fill the prescription every month (there are 5 pens in a prescription 300 units per pen vs. 1000 units in a vial) but to no avail. If anyone out there knows how to get around this I would so appreaciate hearing how it's done!
