OK - I literally stumbled ( as in - my new favorite site De Jour) upon this article called "Nine Secrets Health Insurers Don't Want You To Know," which was posted on in September of 2007.

As Diabetics it seems as if we are always fighting for coverage, choices, and options for our health. This article has tips from industry insiders that can only help us in fight to get approval for CGMS, pumps, and tests that can only help us to live long and healthy lives.

Click on the link at the bottom of the post and learn about our rights as both consumers and patients.

Knowledge is power and I plan on taking this knowledge to the bank and giving Diabetes Math a run for it's money! Hope you do to!,23414,1663353,00.html

Great article! I'm glad you found it. Sometimes fighting with insurance companies is hard work! And no fun at that.
I like the part about writing letters instead of calling. I work in an office environment and when a client calls, unless we put it in the computer, there's no record of it there. I'm sure it's the same with insurance companies.

Cara -
your right. It just goes to show that the pen is mightier than the sword, or in this case - the phone at times!

Wow, Kelly.

For a funny girl, you sure come up with some SERIOUSLY valuable info.

I always rely on written documents for a leg to stand on later. They take time to put together, but it's worth it. Those other tips are great, too.

My funny comes from some serious places, and some damn near goofy ones as well!

Glad u liked the info. And your right about writing instead of calling. Cara stated that it's a great tracking device and she's right.
