What are the costs for the humulog like?
My diabetes doctor told me I'm an excellent candidate for a pump, but insurance wouldn't cover the cost until I demonstrated I could keep my condition well controlled, and in the timeframe that took my insurance expired.
I run, walk, bike often and carrying everything needed to do injections on me all the time is a PITA.
I'm very interested.
The problem with the pump is that you need to use humulog insulin as its almost instant. With insurance, its a normal rx copay, but without insurance, its about $115 per ml vial. Each res holds 3mls and last bout a week.
So without insurance, you would pretty much end up in the same boat i am. Especially that the infushion sets are also convered my insurance and not cheap without it either.
