I work at a health insurance company where we are constantly developing new programs to increase members' compliance with diabetes treatment. This is because the more compliant they are with their treatment, the less they in appropriately utilize EDs and hospitals. I will you that invariably the two primary obstacles to diabetes compliance are checking blood sugar (they don't like finger pricks) and taking insulin (don't like needles). Diet and exercise are always an issue regardless of medical issue.
SO, people, these lizards can slither all over these boards in between binges of jerkhing off with their fingers in their gasholes, but you need to man the #$%$ up and rely on your intelligence and DD to keep your senses. My company will gladly pay the premium for a game changing drug like Afrezza on the formulary because it will save us tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in unnecessary ED and inpatient stays.
Hang on and at the end of this mess you'll be holding a prize horse while the manipulators will be holding their dirty tissues.
Quem, you are absolutely correct. Quote: "My company will gladly pay the premium for a game changing drug like Afrezza on the formulary because it will save us tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in unnecessary ED and inpatient stays."
When this is all over and dust settles the people who kept their wits about them will be richly rewarded. Then this will all be a fancy story to tell- Once there was this most terrible bear raid, I survived and lived to tell about it...
Sentiment: Strong Buy
My company has a program where my insurance is discounted by having a nurse call me every two weeks to discuss my health progress. We discuss my diet, bs readings, A1c and other diabetes and health care issues. I receive deep discounts on my diabetes medication and free testing supplies for participating in the program. They have finally figured out they can pay now to help me stay healthy or pay more later. If Afrezza helps people stay compliant everyone wins.
You are the one paying less, not your insurance company. And another way you will pay is when Big Brother completely takes over health care and is having you report every 2 weeks on what you should be doing in your daily activities. Once you're firmly entrenched in the new system, it will gradually change from deep discounts to penalties for non- compliance. Just watch!
