Under Medicare DME insulin pumps and the insulin used in them are both considered DME. Medicare provides 80% coverage for insulin pumps plus 100% coverage for the insuin used in the pump. However I cannot find a pharmacy who will bill the insulin under Medicare Part B. Can any Type 1 Medicare Diabetics let me know who you are using? I've contacted my doctors, pump manufacturers, Medicare, online and management, Eli Lilly head pharmacists, Target, Walgreens, CVS and Target but no suppliers yet. I did contact RiteAid who will provide it if there is a RiteAid in your state. Unfortunately, they are none in Florida.
