At the clinic, I spent months fighting Medicaid to get a particularly hypo prone T-1 approved for a Guardian. I finally got it approved then MedT tells me that they don’t even know when they’ll be able to ship. Could be a month!
Turns out this box, and the one before it, will actually set me back 175 bucks each, not the $161 I was told it would. It seems the insurance company’s negotiation on price is only for their half of the sensors. I still have to pay half of the full retail price. So screwed yet again.
What perverted world it is where the insurance company makes the co pay and the patient pays the balance?
So now I pay $17.50 per sensor. I guess that’s a real bargain over the $45 each I paid way back when this adventure began almost two years ago. The price of being a pioneer, I suppose. If I wear the sensors as indicated it would cost $5.84 per day or $2,132 per year with insurance coverage.
