RE: [IP] Bummed



RoseLea,

I can't say how it will go for you but the same thing happened to me. I was
investigating the pump and had already contacted my company's insurance
carrier when my boss told me we were changing carriers. I too was upset and
frustrated. Lo and behold our new carrier knows the value of pumping and I
was approved 2 days after my initial inquiry to them. Their response was
"have your doctor send us a prescription and we'll get you your pump."
Sometimes the switch can be a good thing. Hope it works out for you. (P.S.
our new carrier is an HMO believe it or not)

Well, here I was making plans to get a pump.  Checking into insurance,
checking into pumps, taking in all the wonderful information from everyone
on this list.  Now my husband's company is switching insurances on me.  Not
sure what my new coverage will be, not even sure if I can keep my endo (who
I've been seeing for close to 20 years).  I'm feeling pretty bummed out
now... sheesh this disease is bad enuff without everyone else screwing
things up!
