so...i called my insurance company today after not hearing for a good three weeks about the second claim request to have them approve the animas pump and cartiages for $6,995.00
The woman I spoke to on the phone said it had been updated the other day and that it has been approved but only for $6,600.00. Puts me on the line for $395.00 when I have $10 to my name, a maxed out credit card and a $200 phone bill due in a few weeks(as well as the costs of cleaning and moving at the end of the month and utilities). That wasn't so great..but at least a big chunk of it is approved.
I talked to my insurance rep at Animas and she's put in a price drop request from $395 to $95 to help me out, since my insurance company won't cover the whole thing. I'll find out in a few days if that'll happen.
....so looks like this is gonna happen...
I'm already scared about not doing needles anymore. I love my needles.
