"90, and I just finished eating Tasti D-Lite so that hasn't hit my system yet. I almost forgot about this and I definitely would have delayed my snack, but all is well!"

Liz replied to tyler's discussion 'SONIC ROOTBEER FLOAT HELP !'
"I would let him have the float and give him the injection for it, but maybe cut back a little if his BG is near normal or lower. By 3 hours after his previous injection most of the Novolog would have been gone. So I would give him a slightly…"

Thank you so much for the detailed reply. I have a hunch that we are dealing with two very different plans, for mine is not the HMO - it is the "100" plan, which haa $100 deductible for dr visits and another $100 deductible for meds. Then the rest is 90/10 for dr and (god forbig) hospital visits, plus lab tests.
Meds are $75 co pay for a 3 month supply of insulin and $12.50 for 3 months of generic oral meds. Plus $75 for 3 months of test strips. The rep told me that I shouldn't have a problem getting enough for 8 tests/day.
My current HMO pays 100% for test strips, and lab tests, so this is going to be very very different. I'm trying not to freak out about it, but it keeps creeping into my mind in the early hours of the morning........
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Liz, I just saw your reply on which insurance co covered your CGMS. I work in Minneapolis but for a company headquartered in NYC and my beloved HMO has been discontinued and I enrolled in Empire BCBS for '09. Now I know that each employer negotiates for each specific plan provision, but, in general are they easy to work with. I'm assuming that the CGMS is considered "durable medical equipment"? Also, do you use expresscripts for your insulin?
I am really stewing about all of this so any input you can give would be helpful. Thanks.

Hallo Liz,
Reading your comments,I wondered how you managed diabetes for years without insurance.In third world countries,most people just manage by themselves,having to buy insulin or tablets and that is it!!!
