Last year, I got a letter from my insurance company addressed specially to me (which I found strange considering I was 17). I opened it, turned it over to make sure that it was for me, and reread it. I had been diagnosed for 5 years already but the letter read:
We have reviewed yor recent medical records for the past several months and believe that you may have type 1 diabetes. We have attached a list of signs and symptoms to look out for. If you suspect any of these, please contact your physician.
5 years and they just realized that i may have diabetes. Why else would I be ordering God knows how many diabetic supplies monthly? For the diabetic hobo in my backyard? Epic fail insurance company.
