Hi all.. I am considering to move to Aetna as part of insurance offered through my employer. I know it depends on the plan and other attributes. But how is the overall experience with Aetna regarding insulin pumps and supply coverage.

Any inputs will be greatly appreciated.

I have Atena through my husband's employer, and I have had great luck with them covering my insulin pump and supplies. They cover whatever my doctor writes my prescription for, without any problems. I test my blood sugar numerous times a day (usually 16-18 times) and they cover my test strips and lancets for testing that often without any problems or questions.

Thanks Sheri.
Can I ask you if there is a copay for your strips and insulin.

Sultansfam,
Yes, I do have a copay for my test strips and my insulin. Both are $40 for a 3 month supply.

I have Atena as part of my student insurance coverage. For my test strips (FREEStyle lite) I consume 300 and my co-payment is $20 a month.
I got Dexcom, they cover 60% while I need to pay the 40% that is left

Not sure about pump supplies, hope this helps
