I was wondering if anyone had any experience with getting insulin pens covered while also using vials for a pump. I am a college student and would like the option to keep a box of pens on hand for pump issues, illness, other emergencies, when I run out insulin vials before my refill date, etc. but my insurance will not pay for pens and vials at the same time. My doctor is rarely ever able to offer me more than one sample pen and often times can’t even offer that. Obviously being a student I can’t afford to pay 600 dollars out of pocket either. I was wondering if anyone knew of any creative workarounds (creative prescribing hacks, etc.) to get insurance to cover a single box of pens (at least one/year) without messing up my coverage with vials.
