Re: [IP] medicare coverage and supplies



Kathie,
I have been on Medicare as my primary and have a secondary. I get all of my 
pump supplies from Medtronic Minimed. I have never had a problem with them. 
As for the IV Prep; I get that from Advanced diabetes Supply 
(1-800 -730-9887). ADS is reliable and my cost is less than with MM for the 
IV Prep and my tapes which Medicare and my secondary insurance does not pay 
(for me). I buy my test strips from ADS also and they are covered 100% by 
Medicare A/B and my secondary. With ADS and MM I get good service.
