Re: [IP] Frustration! Help me (insurance)



I know people don't like it when the whole post is there on reply's, but I
felt the need to leave it there.  A short update:  first of all I want to
deeply thank whoever first came up with this mailing list, and then I want
to thank the internet for letting me find it.  I just found out from a
fellow ip mailing list person this information:  Her son is 10 years old, is
on the pump now and we both have exactly the same insurance!!  Joyce works
for UND (therefore has state insurance w/EPO plan, I know because I asked
her), my husband works road maintenance for the state of ND with---- you
guessed it state insurance, and we are on the EPO plan.  I am going to now
DEMAND a prescription for the pump and start to prove my case!!!
Thanks for listening.  Now I must go to sleep as I worked 12 hours last
night (I am a nurse), I haven't slept yet today and I have 3 more nights to
work.
