Health care is a basic human right, not a privilege. For some reason, we’ve allowed ourselves as Americans to be fooled into accepting that one must be blessed with “means” to actuate appropriate health care. As a nation we have failed to realize that our health care system is a barometer of our society’s value for human life.

This Is So Cool

Below is an email I received from a Minimed Associate in regards to my CGM Mini-Link:

Hi Sarah:

Great news! Just wanted to follow-up with you to let you know I was able to get the benefits for your Transmitter and Sensors. These items are covered.

Take care!

I'm still waiting for the other shoe to drop. They still have time to deny this claim. I'm still crossing my fingers, but I'll be damned cuz from here, it's looking pretty good!
