My son has Medicaid (we're in TX) as his secondary ins. I know our primary ins doesn't, but does Medicaid cover a nurse to inject insulin at daycare during his lunch? I've received conflicting info. When I called Medicaid they said they may cover it if the doctor states he needs a nurse to go to his daycare to give insulin. The doctor's 'clinician' (I'm not sure what her correct title is) said she's never heard of it before, but she would ask around and see if the doctor would do this. My son and my 5 yr old go to an in-home daycare/pre-K who originally said they would be ok with giving him his insulin. Now they don't feel as comfortable doing it, because it can be a little confusing figuring out how much he should get, or when to round up or down based on his glucose level before he eats lunch. I love his daycare and they've both been going for almost 2 yrs, so I'm feeling torn as to what to do. They're the ones who suggested looking into Medicaid for a nurse. I've been going at his lunch time to give his injections during my lunch break, but this can't go on forever. I know it's still so new, and I'm hoping if a nurse comes in and shows them it's 'easy' they'll feel more comfortable. The daycare spoke with someone who got them scared saying they could inject him in the wrong place on his arm and cause damage, or he could get an infection, and then if they'd be blamed. I may have to consider another place for him, but it's going to be hard no matter what finding a new place who will do this. Any advice would be much appreciated.
