"PS...Insulet wants the failed pods.. They send another pod and request you send the pod back with the return packaging. I have also had 2 PDM failures! The keep that info as well."

"My first box of the new pods went very well! BUT, after that, I've had more pod failures in one month than I ever had in 4 1/2 years with the old pods! I still love the pods, but my confidence level has gone down some!"

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.

Thanks for the info, I'll investigate more thoroughly to see what I can find like that. When my employee plan was BC/BS it was not very satisfactory. Changing would would mean leaving the healthcare plan I had when I worked with which I was very satisfied but as you can see, it's quite expensive.
