Help! We got a notice from our insurer (Anthem BCBS Colorado) that it will no longer cover Freestyle testing strips for our daughter, who uses Omnipod. The notice says that the strips aren't medically necessary and that other strips work just as well. We're irritated about the hassle factor of having to use a separate meter, of course, but we're particularly worried about safety with so many other caregivers taking care of our daughter. For example, in order for our daughter to have a full summer of care, we've had to enroll her in four different day camps, each with multiple staff who will handle pokes etc. I shudder at the possibility for user error by a bunch of counselors new to diabetes having to learn two different devices and then do manual entry of numbers. Has anyone successfully appealed a determination that integrated meter strips aren't medically necessary? Is our daughter's age and reliance on non-parent caregivers a relevant consideration?
