Re: [IP] Re:Does Medicare pay for pump/supplies?



Some Medicare HMO's will pay for the pump (if you have that particular HMO).
Straight Medicare (no HMO) does not pay, YET.  As I understand it, this will
change sometime soon in the new year (hope, hope, hope, hope).  Look for the
announcement sometime in the Spring, if not before.
