Hello. My name is Jillian and I am a new member here. I am sorry to bother all of you but basically I’m having a rough time right now. My husband and I got married in September and he has type 1 diabetes. He was diagnosed at age 16 and since then, he’s controlled it okay but could do better. He is on insulin shots multiple times a day and checking his blood sugar many times a day also. We are both 32 years old. We have been trying to get him a Dexcom and the Omipod, as he needs both. We have been repeatedly denied by his insurance and it’s a reputable insurance company. We are really feeling very out of sorts and feel like no matter what we do, we can’t give him the quality of life he deserves and frankly I feel like a failure. Has anyone else been here? Am I doing something wrong? I’m sorry again for all of this.
TLDR… 32 year old T1D husband needs dexcom and omipod. Big bad insurance company hates us and said no unless we pay thousands a month out of pocket. Please help or share your stories.
