I understand that Dee. I am strongly considering moving to Lee Co. in the near future, I have been looking on line for several months, & have friends in the Pine Island area. The $3600 savings on out of pocket would be another incentive. Is yor BC plan a Medigap plan? About how much would the monthly premium run? Thanks

I said it was complicated. Medicare does NOT cover either the pods or the DexCom sensors. However, in order for my secondary insurance to cover them as they were doing before I was on Medicare and when they were my primary insurance, I must have a denial of coverage from Medicare. Then, now that I use Liberty, I pay $1000 deductible and they pay 80% of the cost of the pods and sensors. I thought I understood that your Medicare Advantage Plan through BC/BS paid for your pods. But that's new, correct? I know that I can't change plans until the end of 2012 but in the meantime, I can be looking for the right plan for me. Again, thanks for the info.
