RE: [IP] Glucagon kit-NYS



ADA site link re: insurance coverage for diabetes equipment, supplies,
self-education for NYS is:
http://www.diabetes.org/main/community/advocacy/ny.jsp
and lists these items:
Equipment:
Blood glucose monitors
Blood glucose monitors for the legally blind
Data management systems
Insulin pumps and associated appurtenances
Insulin infusion devices
Supplies:
Test strips for glucose monitors
Visual reading and urine testing strips
Lancets and lancet devices
Insulin
Injection aids
Cartridges for the legally blind
Syringes
Oral agents for controlling blood sugar

What is upsetting though is that if you have Medicare, then some of this isn't
necessarily covered (ex: data management systems) even if you have a secondary
insurance based in NYS.
