Re: [IP] Letter of Medical Necessity, STRIPS etc...



Yes, we do know, but the letter I was composing was to the insurance company
about covering test strips and Humalog, not the pump!  :)  Those are the
things they were trying to deny me, and because of the letter, I now get 250
strips a month, and 200 lancets,  mailed to my home, with NO co-pay, and my
insulin is covered.
