Does medtronic bill your insurance for skin prep?

    Just wondering, this is our 4th order with them for Kayla's pump supplies and I noticed on the EOB that they didn't have the skin prep on there and I looked and saw it was billed to our debit card for the full price. I don't remember that the last 3 times.

    Our insurance doesn't cover preps/wipes. When we were ordering direct from Animas, they would give us a discount and then bill our alternate form of payment (ie. not insurance, but us).

    I have to laugh because our insurance said they don't cover anything disposable. I had to bite my tongue from saying all pump supplies are disposable.

    Our insurance doesn't cover tapes or preps, either. We had one health insurance, an HMO, that did cover tapes and preps, I miss that company.

    On second thought, I think our insurance does cover Preps, like IV Prep and Skin Prep. But they don't cover tape or things like SkinTac.

    Yes, and they pay for it.
