Janet Ballone replied to Linny's discussion 'Insulet a non-preferred provider' in the group OmniPod Users
"I'll be starting on the Tandem (T:slim) next week which is covered 100% by Medicare. It's not tubeless but it's better than paying so much money every month. I'm looking forward to it."

Janet Ballone replied to Linny's discussion 'Insulet a non-preferred provider' in the group OmniPod Users
"I went hell with insurances for omnipod... it worked for a while although I still had to pay in part for the pods. I'll now be starting on the Tandem t:slim pump because Medicare doesn't cover OmniPod at ALL...I tried everything. They…"

Janet Ballone replied to dishers's discussion 'Doctor still in the dark ages' in the group OmniPod Users
"Exactly David and I just signed a petition for Medicare to approve the CGM along with many people on my Facebook page. They label it a "luxury"... hmmmmm a luxury that saves lives. Doesn't quite make any sense."

Janet Ballone replied to dishers's discussion 'Doctor still in the dark ages' in the group OmniPod Users
"Yes. You must go to an endocrinologist. I found many general practitioners do not know much about Diabetes. I was lucky that my primary care physician was honorable enough to recommend the best endocrinologist for Diabetes in New Jersey. I was…"

Janet Ballone replied to Linny's discussion 'Omnipod and insurance!' in the group OmniPod Users
"Thank you. I'm going Friday to learn about the different pumps that are available that are covered. It will have to be a "tube" pump but that's better than going back to injections and figuring everything out myself."

Janet Ballone replied to Linny's discussion 'Omnipod and insurance!' in the group OmniPod Users
"You're welcome. The representative from OmniPod told me they're trying desperately to get Medicare to insure their products. Hopefully in 10 years they'll be successful. Good luck to you. :-)"

Janet Ballone replied to Linny's discussion 'Omnipod and insurance!' in the group OmniPod Users
"I'm choosing a new pump but there are no other remote control pumps, just tubing but I'd still rather do that than go back to needles and figure out all the boluses. I did that for 2 years before I knew about any pump and I definitely got…"

Janet Ballone replied to Linny's discussion 'Omnipod and insurance!' in the group OmniPod Users
"Just be aware that when you go on Medicare, no matter who your secondary insurance is, they won't cover the pods. Medicare considers the OmniPod System a "Luxury". I've been on it for 9 years and now I have to find another pump…"

Janet Ballone posted a status
"Just for everyone's information, Medicare doesn't cover the OmniPod's. It covers the PDM and insulin but not the pods themselves."

Janet Ballone replied to Cocheze's discussion 'Do you ever need to take it off?' in the group OmniPod Users
"As long as it's secured properly on your body you should only take it off when the pod expires (3 days). I never take mine off but sometimes relocate it on my body. I usually put it on my abdomen and there it stays no matter what. If you take…"

Janet Ballone replied to garidan's discussion 'Medtronic sues Insulet' in the group OmniPod Users
"I don't quite understand this but I hope Insulet doesn't go out of business. I love my OmniPod. And if they are closed down, what do WE do?"

Janet Ballone replied to KevinS's discussion 'Is Insulet ever coming out with a smaller pod and Dexcom integration?' in the group OmniPod Users
"I heard that also so I'm waiting patiently because I don't want to use any other pump."

Hello! Thank you for having me as a friend Janet :)
New Jersey...far, and yet right here! That's one of the appealing factors of tu.diabetes. I'm in Canada...in the southwestern part of the province of Ontario...a city named Kitchener-Waterloo (2 cities joined together). I'm a wife of 33 years, mom to two grown children, a grandma to 3 lovable little boys, a teacher, and before that an illustrator and graphic designer....I speak French and English, I read, history fascinates me, I paint, sing, walk, garden, ski, ride my bike....did I mention "read"? I love having friends over, I bake/cook, am an eclectic music lover, an animal lover...the ocean...ah the ocean...it speaks to me! Oh...and I have diabetes (and a few other things).
Keep in touch, ok?
luv....linda
