Re: [IP] Preferred provider's high supply prices



Marilyn,
My insurance carrier is BCBS also.  They mentioned over the phone the mm was
a supplier.  I am not on the pump yet and still investigating my options. Do
you know if they would have covered the D?  I am still unclear on that and
the phone rep keeps refering me to the suppliers and only mentions the two
"near" me.  I know I should just talk to the pump suppliers and have them
duke it out with BCBS but I still have to get my endo on board.  :)

Thanks,
Sherry
