Default Hi!

I am Mary, was diagnosed as T1 in 2009 at the age of 55. I am using Omnipod and Dexcom 6 CGM - both of which are life savers and help so much in dealing with this. Right now I have excellant insurance but am now researching Medicare supplements which is almost as overwhelming as diabetes! I am looking for advice from diabetics as to which supplemental insurance will cost me less for my equipment and insulin. Help! Thanks, Mary

Welcome to the forum, Mary! I'm not up to Medicare yet but I know many posters here are. I hope they'll respond to your question -- based on what I hear about it, it's not an easy decision to make.

Hi Mary, welcome to the forum. I'm a year away from Medicare myself and probably a couple of years behind on getting started researching my options. I will be all ears and eyes.
