"I know how you feel, I am on high doses as well, and a months supply of pods for me is 2 boxes at the very least. my insurance only covers 90% of the pods, so it gets to be expensive."

Scott Wilkins replied to Jeff's discussion 'Insurance' in the group OmniPod Users

I have recently switched insurance carriers, from Blue Cross NJ. to Blue Shield Ca, employment change. With the New Jersey Blue my pods were covered under the pharmacy benefit. Does anyone have experience with Blue Shield Ca. and podding? I am thinking it's going to be another nines hoops of fire again.Thanks, JeffSee More
