I lied.







*Update*
I found out the pharmacy was just billing insurance #2, not #1. That is what got us stuck with bills the last time, because #2 is not supposed to be paying for everything. When we tried to get #1 to pay, they will only give me limited amounts. Everyone in the world seems to think 200 strips is SOO MANY!! Why in the world would I need to test more than 4 times a day????? So now I'm in the process of appealing that amount. Not a HUGE deal, just another annoyance that I thought was all taken care of!

I have been on the phone with my insurance company for 4 days now. They think Riley should only get 5 strips per day. What in the world? I tested him 5 times in the middle of the night last night because he was too high and then too low. 5 times in a span of about 6 hours. But, 5 strips are supposed to last me a whole day. What a joke. Girl, I feel your pain.

My insurance pays for 15 test strips a day. I don't know what I would do if my insurance would only cover 4 per day. YIkes!

Sarah,
How in the world did you get them to pay for that many!! I'm jealous!!
Penny,
I feel your pain. Good luck with your fight! I want 10 a day because I'm a college student, and I can easily be awake from 7am to 2am. Not to mention middle of the night tests! I can't imagine living on 5 a day with a little one.

Jen,
I'm not sure how my doctor's office works their magic with my insurance company, but they do!
