Re: [IP] Edgepark vs Diabetes Specialty Center?

I ordered my first Dexcom in July 2010 and had to go through Edgepark  I 
had to pay for the started kit out of my own pocket, as my insurance had 
just changed in June of that year. A month later, I ordered 3 boxes of 
sensors.  Insurance dropped part of the claim from their system, so when 
Edgepark did not get paid, they started billing me.  I was very put out 
at both Edgepark and Medica!  Edgepark promised to fix the billing, and 
then the next month, the same bill would appear.  I got tired of it and 
contacted the Better Business Bureau.  It did get straightened out, but 
it took awhile.

In 2011, they tried to collect an upfront payment for my first order of 
sensors, saying that I had paid nothing toward my deductible at that 
point.  I knew that I had, so called Medica and that C/S person called 
Edgepark and forced them to reduce my upfront payment.  But...a claim 
from my endo got to Medica and got processed before the Edgepark sensor 
one, so the upfront payment was still wrong.  They refunded it to me in 
August 2012.

I'm sure that Diabetes Specialty Center can do a much better job!
