i have been trying to get my insurance to pay for an insulin pump, but, unfortunately (yet predictably) have been denied. i have gone over the pros and cons of using the pump and, for me, the pros far outweigh the cons. first and foremost because i'm bad about forgetting to take each shot throughout the day. the problem is, with all the information i have found on the pump, i cannot seem to find out just how much one costs and if the insulin is more expensive. i am in a coverage gap as far as my prescription coverage goes and will have to be paying full price for the insulin. i am on a limited income and having many health issues that require medications i cannot afford to pay anymore than i am presently (about $650/month for insulin alone). can anyone tell me how much their pump cost and the average cost of the insulin each month?
