Just switched from United Healthcare to Aetna and have been using A-plus medical for supplies for 13 years— my deductible went from $600.00 to $8000.00! I called Aetna and they say this is a out-of-network provider. Even if I find an In-Network-Provider the deductible is $4000.00! And ideas on where to get supplies?

Why did you switch from a lower-deductible policy to one with a much higher deductible? Lower monthly premium costs are not always the best solution…and sometimes, it is cheaper (out-of-pocket) to obtain some drugs without insurance rather than using your insurance. You might want to glance at my discussion about this: http://www.diabeticconnect.com/diabetes-discu.... Items like insulin and pump supplies can and do add up quickly.
