RE: [IP] Coverage



My husbands job is changing insurance from Cigna to Generations.  I received
there coverage book yesterday and it says that they cover pump supplies
100%!  WOW I thought.  So, I called the company to make sure.  She said that
as long as the supplies are greater than $150 but less than $500 every 3
months they would be covered 100%!!
I am hoping it stays like this!

What is wrong with 90% coverage? My insurance then BC/BS HMO covered 80%
for which I was thankful!
I don't know yet of any company that covers the pump 100%. My supplies got
covered 80% also at that time.
Just curious :)
I took a class which my insurance wouldn't cover at that time I had BC/BS
HMO. We no longer have the HMO- we have the BC/CS PPO choice.And finally I
can have a CDE! :)
and when I meet my out of pocket deductable of 300.00 my supplies are
covered 100%. Can't beat that.
