I live in Alabama and went to order my supplies a 90 day supply had no trouble before. I use an insulin pump. I was told by my employer provider that BCBS of Alabama now only pays for 5 reservoirs and 5 sites a month. Has anyone else had this problem? Help

I am waiting for BCBS to get back with me. I don't understand I have (2) BCBS coverages one under me one under my husband. I work in a hospital. My endocrinologist said he would write a letter of necessity. My pump only holds 180ml of insulin at a time. I may have to go to the pump that holds 300mls. It makes me upset I work pay my taxes have 2 insurances and still get the run around. When people that don't work are here from other countries get all the free health care and help they need and I am having to fight for mine and was born and raised here. Just don't get it! Thanks again for your advice I may have to
