Get anyone in the medical proffession to write whatever they can!!! Insurance companies don't worry what is best for us, they only want what they percieve as cheapest. One thing I have learned about insurance, the squeaky wheel gets oiled. Don't give up on it. I find it crazy that you can't see an endo!!! All diabetics should be able to see an endo. I see only an endo, I have no PCP. I have been T1 for 40 years and have luckily remained healthy so far. I believe alot of it has to do with my being able to see the Drs., CDE's, nutritionists, etc. etc. that I need to see.
I have heard of all kinds of excuses for insurance not to authorize pumps. You have good control, don't need one. Your control is not good enough to warrant you having one, on and on and on.
I know that it IS possible to get one.... I never even had my insurance question my use of the pump, I think my endo's office just knows how to handle the insurance companies so it's not such a hassle.
Hang in there and be a squeaky wheel!! Definetly have your current Dr. write a letter. If that doesn't work, seek out an endo, however you have to do it. I wonder if your insurance would think it's a good idea for a diabetic not to see an endo? It's almost like telling someone with cancer that you don't need to see an oncologist. Insurance just irritates me so much!! I've been dealing with it a LONG time.
Good luck. Let us know what happens.
