RE: [IP] Medicare coverage for pump supplies

I am on an Animas 1250 pump and Animas bills Medicare and my supplement
(BC/BS) for all my supplies including the IV Prep and UniSolve.   I just had
to provide a letter of necessity (or prescriptions) from my doctor.

All of the supplies ARE covered, except, I think, pre-filled reservoirs and
some ancillary supplies like Skin Prep and IV3000.  As far as your secondary
goes, it depends on which Medicare Supplement you have.  The type of plan
dictates what is covered.
