The DSMA blog carnival topic for May is "I wish my insurance company paid for __________ because ________."
I'm going to go a different direction with this prompt. I'm not going to fill in the sentence. Why? Because I have incredible health insurance.
I've written about health insurance before. This is far and away the best health insurance I've ever had. Hands down. Yes, it's still expensive, but I've yet to have anything rejected that I've asked for. When I first got my CGM, it was approved in two hours. They cover the new VerioIQ strips.
For the first time, I don't feel punished for having a chronic condition. I never want to leave this insurance, ever!
So my wish? My wish is for everyone to have health insurance as good as mine. Because that's how it should be. We have a chronic condition, and do not deserve to be punished for it. I firmly believe that. Yet that's how a lot of insurance companies make people feel. I know I've felt that way before.
People with any chronic condition, diabetes or otherwise, should have access to any and all care and tools available to take care of themselves. Without going bankrupt in the process. Period. End of discussion.
I really wish I had a magic wand I could wave to make this happen.
