I am shocked, my stomach is in knots, and I feel so done with the state of Colorado right now. The Medtronic insurance person never called, so I phoned her and could tell she really didn't want to have the conversation we were about to have. They've never, to her knowledge, had a pump denied by Medicaid before. Medicaid said it's not medically necessary because dd is well controlled on MDI. Really? Could they please send someone over to show me where in her logs we see the picture of 'well controlled'? So, I did what I always do when I'm extremely emotional - I wrote. I have now emailed it to every division leader for Colorado Department of Public Health, state Medicaid program, EPSDT, and the Health Care unit for Children with Special / Chronic Health Care needs as well as the governor. After that, I posted it on my blog as an open letter, and shared it to both facebook and google+ (my name is linked to face book and the blog link is in my sig if you want to read it, but it's long.) Not that it will have an effect on anything, but I'm so tired of everything we've gone through since diagnosis, and can't conceive of just sitting by and letting life happen anymore. I am fighting this decision. Period.
