Last year my son met the DME max on my insurance with the Minimed pump and CGMS purchase. Now I am getting bills from Minimed from last year because my insurance said I met the DME max in 2007. They are considering the supplies as DME. Does anyone have any experience in convincing an insurance company that the supplies should be considered something other than DME? In my mind they are the same as syringes - something that is throwaway to deliver insulin. Thanks for your help. I have a pretty forgiving PPO plan but I am afraid sometimes to ask them something and end up having them go back and change something to my negative. Anyone have any helpful ideas?
