Quitting Medical Mutual's Superwell program?

Does anyone know if Medical Mutual can deny you your testing and pump supplies if you quit their Superwell program? My patience with the long, invasive phone calls is wearing thin, and I don't think I have gotten anything out of this except a growing annoyance with my Type I diabetes (where I used to have a pretty good attitude, really.)The only reason I have tolerated these nonsensical conversations with people who have very limited knowledge about diabetes is fear that I will lose my benefit…See More

"Thank you! My daughter took this picture when she was just 10 years old. Nicky was "raised" by our Golden Retreiver, so he is a pretty cool cat."

Oh my gosh...I looked at my last post, and I'm disgusted with the spelling errors! Almost want to draw little circles around them, with the letters "sp" (that's the teacher in me!!)
Yes, Meeko may have been lucky, but deep down I think it was more I than she who was blessed!
You have a separate little house for the cats?....lucky cats!

Greetings fellow teacher!
I'm able to do more on tu.dibetes now, since it's summer...but will soon HAVE to crack open the books, as I'm familiarizing myself with a new programme....I will also be teaching French come September!
We picked up Meeko's ashes on Friday...well actually my husband it's still a delicate subject for me....the plan is to to sprinkle some of her ashes in her fav. places...and in places she would have loved to roam, had she been given that freedom....some of her ashes will also be added to a gerden stone I'm doing in her mauves and pinks....she was a beautiful cat; but looked positively stiking against pink!

Hello! How's it all going Janeen...any questions/suggestions? Take a look at some of the groups available when you get a chance!
