Re: [IP] Insurance Denial



Yes I do.  One of the children is my son Taylor who is 10, but was started
on the pump when he was 9.  I have many papers and ideas for you, but must
go back to lunch right now.  I also know the other mom whose son is on the
pump.  Let me know where you are at, and what all has been told to the
insurance.  Most of all be prepared to fight.  I would not let them deny you
because of age, that is so stupid!!!!!!
