RE: [IP] Medicare Prescriptions

Hi Jo,

No, it isn't correct if you are on Medicare A & B.  You need to remind the
pharmacy that insulin & test strips come from Part B, not D, because you
wear a pump.  A lot of them don't realize that 'til you inform them.  If
you're not on regular Medicare, then I don't know the answer, but there are
plenty of pumpers on this list who do have Advantage and will answer you.

else's life."

Subject: [IP] Medicare Prescriptions

<<was told for 5 vials of Humalog I owed $164.00 and $145.00 for One Touch
test strips testing 8 times per day.  I haven't met my deductible, but am
confused about the surprisingly high co-pays.   Can anyone tell me if this
is correct?>>
