[IP] obtaining insurance coverage and type 2



just some hints if you are trying to obtain a pump and have type 2 diabetes.  

*do not state type of diabetes just that you are insulin dependent
*if A1c is normal state the range your BG varies if not normal stat the A1c
and the range.
*if you have any complications state them and how tighter control may help
*state currnt diabetes management especially if on intensive management /
multiple injections
*state if you are already adjusting insulin according to BG values, food
intake, and exercise

all this should help.  these are things typically the insurance looks at
