Reader Question - Can You Help?
Hey guys - quick question from a reader about medical insurance and insulin pump coverage. I've had limited experience with insurance switches while pumping, so I'm hoping a few of you guys can offer another perspective or two for this SUM reader, so she can make an educated decision (and move towards a successful pregnancy - yay!!)
"I'm switching jobs soon and will also be switching insurance companies. Does this mean that I will have to go through the approval process [for the pump] all over again or will my next insurance company support whatever supplies I am using at the time I start my policy with them? I have never changed insurance companies while on the pump and I don't know what kinds of hassle that will bring? If any? If I do have to start all over with the new insurance company, should I just give up and stay on MDI's? Or should I go ahead and get pregnant and if I get approved, then start pumping mid-pregnancy?"
If you've got some advice for this reader, please leave your comments below! Thanks in advance for your help, guys!
