Yeppers. I just got *good* news!!! We started a new COBRA plan with the
former employer (now $637.00 a mo instead of $824.00) 8/1/03. I recently
walked into the pharm and got 5 vials of Humalog for $40.00. GREAT!

I tried to get strips and the pharmacist said it won't take. I found out
today I have $750 deductible, then
they pay 75% UP TO $500.00 per year!!!!!!!!! That includes  a new pump,
infusion sets, reservoirs, strips, meters, and DME!!!


I do have Medicare as secondary due to ESRD and they will pay 80-20 of
what's leftover. That helps, but what if I didn't have kidney failure???

Good news - I have enough lancets to last me a couple of lifetimes.
