I face a similar situation with the syringes. In point of fact, many Part D plans pay for the syringes. It is absurd in fact, to cover insulin and not the means of administering it.
But AARP's wise choice of United HealthCare ---- it is UHC that has removed this coverage. Other firms still cover the syringes.
Of course, don't ever rely upon AARP to take a stand against the insurer that very likely pays AARP a cut of the premiums. In that regard, I believe AARP to be unethical.
UHC never informed me in writing, as required by law, that they would not cover the syringes. They waited until after the enrollment period (when I could have changes companies) to tell me. In fact, I did not learn of it until I tried to refill the prescription at the pharmacy.
I am stunned that Part D allows individual plans to kill essential coverages. Thank the same conservatives that created the "donut hole," and thank AARP for failing to be true advocates. AARP as become too fat, too rich, too interested in its own cushy offices, than to be a real advocate.
You hit it right on the nose. I have never been informed. It will not happen next year because no matter what I will change plans. Thank you for your reply.
