  2. Is any financial aid to patients who could better control their diabetes with an insulin pump? (22 Nov 2000)
  3. My 20 month old son has type 1. The insurance company has denied the pump four times. They do not give pumps to children under 13. (7 Nov 2000)
  4. Do you know of a health insurance plan that is or doesn't cost much that I would be able to get on? (3 Nov 2000)
  5. Can you tell me about the CHIP program that Blue Cross/Blue Shield has? (6 Oct 2000)
  6. Our HMO is trying to force us to use specific brands of diabetes care supplies. Can they legally do this force us to use only the ones they want? (9 Sep 2000)
  7. We all use the same types of supplies for the sake of reordering ease. My mother's health insurance is significantly better than mine and utilizes a mail order prescription plan which sent her the wrong syringes. They tell us that they cannot exchange these supplies. (28 Aug 2000)
