Medicare Coverage for the Omni Pod Insulin Pump!

Messages Sent So Far
There are millions of us with Type One Insulin Dependent Diabetes! We all want to begin or continue wearing an Omni Pod Insulin Pump! You must change the Code Numbers and the Wording to Accomplish this! If you refuse to do this Healthcare cost are going to go through the ceiling! Diabetes if not properly controlled will cost this country millions of dollars this can be prevented by using the Insulin Pump made by the Insulet Corporation in Bedford Ma! This will reduce health care cost by allowing the prevention of outrageous complications! Blindness.Kidney Failure,Amputation of limbs due to gangrene from a non-healing scratch!<br />
It's up to Members of the Congress to Oppose or Support this Action: Be aware that there are millions of diabetics in this country trying to maintain control of their diabetes! There are also many Endocrinologist trying to prevent the complications associated with diabetes! It's up to you to vote in favor of this bill or explain to your Constituents with Diabetes why you don't feel that they are important enough for you to help avoid them these problems! Be my Guest and IGNORE US! I'm sure you'll regret doing that! We have diabetes not dementia and there are more than enough of us to cast votes for your opponents! It's up to you so make a decision it's up to you to remain in office or to be sent out to the pasteur and be forgotten about!

My 14 year old daughter has used the omnipod for 6 months and we've finally been able to keep her blood sugars lower with all of the dosing options you can use with varied activity levels as well dosing different types of meals, that may affect blood sugars differently. She is able to be the active teenager that she should be able to be, including swimming and bathing without having to worry about tubing and disconnecting. Because we lost insurance due to a job loss, we needed state insurance, only to find out that they don't cover this particular pump. Very disheartening considering all the time, effort and money out of our pocket we've spent this last year learning this new system, just to have it taken away. Please, help those with the life-long diagnosis of diabetes get better care now, before you're paying for complications later. Improve their quality of life, and lessen the daily struggle of type 1 diabetes.

The OmniPod system is an innovative approach to stabilize and control the glucose levels of Diabetes Mellitus. As such, a diabetic senior citizen should have the same options available to them that younger diabetics have to manage their diabetes. This act of discrimination against senior citizen is unacceptable in today's America . We deserve the right to have the same medical care offerings as younger Americans. Simply stating, our government sponsored Medicare program must be changed to support the use of the OmniPod system so older Americans have the same health privileges as they're younger counterparts.

The Insulet OmniPod system is the very best, straight forward method to stabilize and control the glucose levels of those with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus. This means control of such nature whereas the diabetic can minimize health complications and even reduce the use of insulin. Actual cost to the Medicare program can actually be less by improved control and lower cost equipment. I will be switching to OmniPod just as soon as Medicare agrees to cover some of the user expense. Help is needed!

My 14 year old daughter has type 1 diabetes and has been relying on Omnipod for 3 years. It has improved her A1C, diabetes management, and overall quality of life. She used both a tubed pump and injections prior to the Omnipod but had negative results. She is active and needs the tubeless solution but now she is being denied supplies. The only choices we face is to find other sources for pods which are not FDA recommended or jeopardize her well-being by changing the medical device she relies on.

This would be a big step forward in my everyday life because I struggle with my sugar going to low nearly every day! I have been a diabetic for over 20 years.
