[IP] Humalog vs. Novolog

I had to switch insurance companies in January. I just talked to them
yesterday as I need to get all new scripts. I have to switch meters since they
don't cover the One Touch strips I've used forever.  Not a huge deal, but the
new Accu-Check meter I'm going to get doesn't "talk" to my Medtronic pump.
Extra step but livable.
However, my Humalog is also a no go. They consider it a "Tier 3" drug which
means I'd have to meet my deductible ($2,300) plus pay a 30% "co-insurance"
for any I get filled. Obviously that's a bit too pricey! They do cover
Novolog. I've never, ever used anything but Humalog. Tips? Things to watch out
for? I understand some folks don't react well to it so I'm a bit nervous
