Re: RE:[IP] medicare and supplies

This may be a little too much to do but, there should be Medicare
supplements that cover what Medicare does not.  I say this because I kinda
know the situation.
My main health coverage comes from the military's program called Tricare.
It cover 80% on things they approve such as my pump equipment.  But then I
have a supplement to that, that covers the rest 100%.  I only pay 53.00 a
year for this.  It may be something to look into.  Thus my pump supplies
only cost me 53.00 a year.  Otherwise with my copays I'd be spending close
to 500.00 a year. And that would mean no pump for me.  Test strips and
insulin I get from the military hospital pharmacy for free.
