Wonderful news! 

When I worked in the insurance industry years ago, most of our plans had that benefit.  If you met your deductible or out of pocket in the last quarter, it carried over for the next year.  It was called carry over credit.  I don't think many plans offer that benefit anymore.

That's kinda crazy.  I've never heard of that.  It wouldn't make a difference for us.  We meet the deductible in the 1st quarter and our OOP is so high we never meet it!

Same for us!  I think it's lower this year, but still too high for us to meet it.

I don't think we usually would, either... but the cost of TWO pumps was pretty significant. Guess this is the only time having twins has been a financial benefit.  <roflmao>

We met OOP for Savannah this year since they upped our co-insurance on most RX to $100/month.  Sigh.

Ours is so high I don't even think if both Jason and Seth wanted pumps we would meet it.  Sigh.

That's awesome! We were told our dexacom and 3 months of sensors was covered at 100% too. I'll believe it when we don't get a bill. LOL! We're going to see if they'll cover the t slim at 100% too. When I called them they couldn't even tell me they're preferred pump brand. I know in the past people have had trouble getting Cigna to cover the t slim.
