Re: [IP] Insurance and Novolog



I don't know if I would have that problem with my insurance, because I can't
even get our endo to write a script for it.  I asked the pump trainer for
him if she knew if Tian would be using Humalong of Novolog.  She said that
our endo only works with Lilly products!  So, no she would not be starting
on Novolog nor will he be prescribing it in the future, even after I told
her that I had heard that there were better bs with it and that the sites
tended to last long.  We are seriously thinking of trying to find a new
endo.  It took us over a year to get him to write the script for the pump.
