Re: [IP] cost of pumping/Medicare

Not sure yet what Medicare will pay for(probably 80% as usual), but at least
it will be something for those on Medicare.

C-peptide level isdicates how much insulin your pancreas produces.  If you
are Type1, this it's probably 0 (the requirement for Medicare is <0.5.

Medicare now pays for all the strips you need (at 80%).  You may be required
to provide test results to show that you test X number of times of day.  I
test 6 times a day, and get 200 strips per month, along with a box of lancts
(200), all with no problems.

Sorry to hear you age going on Medicare, but good luck.
