Re: [IP] Good new/Bad news?



My endo required a month of documentation (log book)
in case this would happen.  I haven't heard anything
yet, but he seems to think it will go through.  If
they try to deny, maybe you could appeal using your
log book and proving that A1C's can be deceiving. 
Best Wishes!
