RE: [IP] Re: Medicare & Drug Plans



 Like Irv, my experience is that Medicare Part B coverage will not the entire
cost of insulin for us pump users. While not an overly bright condition, Part B
expenses do not "hit" your expense calculation for the 'donut hole'. Keep
pumping . . .

 Medicare part B will pay 100% of your insulin as part of a pump. The problem is
that most pharmacies will not process insulin through part B.B Walgreen's will.
