Re: [IP] Mixed Emotions on Pump Approval & Walk for a Cure $ Raised



I wish we could have that "fear/emotion"  we were just denied for the second
time, because "Taylor is under 12, and because his diabetes is controlled
adequately at the present time"  He told us "if I got approved I would
scream my head off!"  I just got a copy of the criteria for insulin pump
from BC/BS ND, and according to the criteria the individual should be 12
years old, but it doesn't say they must be.  We are going to be going off of
the criteria to get him approved!!  His endo addressed each area on the
criteria, the only ones he doesn't meet is the A1C should be 7.2 or above
(his was 5.4, but we had one drawn today), and he is 8.
