[IP] Insurance Approval
I have just joined the list a few days ago, and today I was called by Minimed to tell me my insurance has approved the pump for me!! It actually took less than a month from start to finish. I asked my doctor about the pump when I went for a regular check up February 5th, I had just recently had all my lab work done, so it wasn't necessary to have more done. They sent me to our Regional Diabetes Center, to meet with both a nurse and a dietician. They then sent referrals to both my insurance company (an HMO) and to Minimed. My doctor sent her referral, with a letter of recommendation, prescription, etc. to the insurance company once I had been to the Diabetes Center. That was sent to my insurance company just this past Friday!! And today I received the great news! Minimed said the pump should be shipped out to me on Friday, that's tomorrow!! I am so excited. Also, Minimed told me my insurance company would be covering the pump at 100%, not 90%, like I thought!
So, I am sure I will be asking lots of questions in the following weeks, please bear with me as I learn.
Thanks for listening!!
