Did you see this OUTRAGEOUS news from United Health Care?

"Tandem Diabetes Care®, Inc. (NASDAQ: TNDM), a medical device company and manufacturer of the t:slim®, t:slim G4™ and t:flex® Insulin Pumps, stated that it has learned that UnitedHealthcare yesterday announced that effective July 1, 2016, UnitedHealthcare Community Plan and Commercial members will no longer have an in-network choice among insulin pump providers.  This unexpected decision by UnitedHealthcare designates Medtronic as their preferred, in-network durable medical equipment provider of insulin pumps.  The Company anticipates that this decision will prevent a majority of UnitedHealthcare members from purchasing an insulin pump on an in-network basis from Tandem Diabetes Care and several other durable medical equipment providers."

I called Tandem and they said:  Tandem says that UHC will not provide coverage for Tandem pumps or supplies if your pump malfunctions. As long as it is functioning they will cover supplies. After that they will not cover TANDEM pumps AT ALL. They said they are working with UHC to get that decision turned around. In the mean time ALL OF US CALL UHC to let them know that this is unacceptable and call your doctors and ask them to call UHC as well.  GIVE them backlash upon backlash to turn this around!!!  What about closed loop pumps??  Most of them involve TANDEM AND DEXCOM!  What will be next NO DEXCOM COVERAGE??

Here is their facebook page. LEAVE A COMMENT!!! https://www.facebook.com/UnitedHealthcare/
