Re: [IP] cost of pumping

Dear Melissa,

There is a law which states that if you had insurance for one year before 
switching to another insurance co. (or insurance through a job), then it is 
mandatory that you are covered without penalty (ie:no increased premium).
It went into effect in June or July 1997 and is one thing that Clinton did 
that was good. There is also another law which requires that Medicare, etc. 
cover all medicines and supplies, including pumps, for diabetes. This went 
into effect in the last year, I think. The implication of that one is that 
other insurance companies can also be held under this law. There are options 
although they vary from state to state. Keep searching and good luck.
