        My husband has Blue Cross/Blue Shield with the government (we live in Montana) and we have had no problems with them.  Is it possible that each state's federal BC/BS is different?

Actually, not only each state, but each company.  A company buys a particular plan, which is made according to what the company wants to cover - it really is the company's choice and the company is following the advice of the BCBS marketing people when they sell a plan.  I know because I went up against the plan several years ago when they covered insulin and syringes but not test strips - I went nuts writing and talking to BCBS CEO, Alabama BCBS Director and all sorts of people....Usually companies just pick A, B, or C plan.  HOwever, if they are willing to pay for it, a company can cover anything within reason that they choose to.  My company chose not to cover test strips as a prescription, just as a supply after deductible, just like BCBS recommended to them. However, the next year I went on the pump and no more problem.  -

        Please let me know what Insurance Company you are with, as it is open season 
        for the Government employees, and they are trying to find the best insurance 
        companies..

        I thank my God every day for my Company's insurance company - I used to have 
        one like y'all talk about, I had to fight every claim with letters and phone 
        calls, but 3 years ago we went to a good BCBS and after my Endo and Minimed 
        handled all the OKs I paid practically nothing for my pump.   I have been in 
        y'all shoes with very bad insurance.  I listen to our Canadian and European 
        Pumpers  and their problems, and y'alls "no such thing as customer service", 
        and I am so grateful that mine is so good.  Just had to say that!
