Hi everyone, I'm brand new here (been lurking for awhile though) and am looking for information on insurance coverage of pumps. Our son who is 6 was dx'd August 13, 2013 and is doing really well with MDI right now. However, we really would like to transition him to a pump as soon as we can. He asks about it all the time. The issue right now however is I am in process of switching from FT to PT job so we need to go on my husband's health insurance. Our choices are BCBS, Harvard Pilgrim, and Tufts Navigator. I talked with Tufts rep today, and learned that they only cover a select list of pumps which doesn't include omnipod or tslim, two options we are considering. We're also thinking about Animas Ping. Anyways, I am now trying to learn about BCBS of Massachusetts. From my search online, it looks like they have pretty strict medical necessity criteria for approving a pump, none of which my son meets right now (I don't think)...his BG control is really good right now as I think he is deep into his honeymoon phase. So I guess my questions are: does anyone know which pumps BCBS covers, and how hard it is to get one approved if your child is doing really well with their blood sugar control? Also, if anyone knows about Tufts and even Harvard Pilgrim with pump coverage, that would be helpful too. Sorry if this has been covered in earlier posts... I did search and didn't find anything this specific. Thank you!
