ANNOUNCED TODAY: The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has issued guidance clarifying that Medicare Part D Plan Sponsors may provide coverage for products such as the Omnipod System under the Medicare Part D (prescription drug) program.
FINALLY!!! I’ve endured 2 lengthy claims appeals for Omnipod coverage … once with the great support of Insulet and their attorneys, only to be denied.
“We are incredibly excited about CMS’ confirmation that Omnipod is eligible for coverage under Medicare Part D, which allows many additional people living with diabetes to benefit from Omnipod’s freedom and ease of use,” said Patrick Sullivan, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Gaining Medicare coverage of our Omnipod System was one of our top priorities, since individuals living with diabetes deserve the right to choose the product that will best help them manage their diabetes. We are thrilled more people will be able to choose our innovative and differentiated Omnipod technology, which delivers continuous insulin without the use of tubes and eliminates the stress and anxiety of multiple daily injections.”
