Just to let everyone know my C-peptide level finally went below the Medicare guidelines so my United Healthcare Medicare Insurance approved coverage for my new pump. A long 10 month battle with 6 appeals under my belt. Feeling very blessed and loving my new Medtronic pump.

Congrats on getting approval for a new Medtronic's pump.

Thanks Rex, it was a long ordeal but I'm happy it's over. Terrible that they said they would pay for dialysis but not my pump until my levels got lower. The good part is I never have to be that low again, you only have to have it documented in your medical record once and they have to pay forever. Thank God! Thanks for caring Rex.

This is great news Matt. I do remember the runaround you were getting from Medicare I'm glad it finally happen for you.

Thank you Gary, I left no stone unturned and it finally paid off. I'm on a great road to recover my former BG and A1C levels that have been crazy while I was off my pump.
