I am a Type 1 diabetic and am searching the "Exchange" for appropriate health insurance. Obviously too young for medicaid. I also use a CGM. How are other diabetics dealing with health insurance? Also, who do you use for primary care locally?

I sent you a PM. All I can say is that I would not recommend my current insurer.

Hi StesStream, I'm fortunate enough to be on Medicare, so I can't help you there. I just wanted to introduce myself - Type 1 for 40 years.

For my primary doctor, I see Dr. Christina Pinsinski at Conifer Medical Center, but she's not accepting new patients. The other doctors there are good, too, she's just my favorite.

Who is your endocrinologist?

Since Obamacare, the plans have been so confusing and knowing what might be the best choice is a murky path at best. Because of this, I've used an insurance broker. I find that Scott is upfront and honest - his money is made from the insurance companies, I assume that he doesn't make any more from one company over another, but rather a flat fee (an assumption). In any case, the policies he has recommended for us have taken into consideration all our unique factors.

As an aside, since Obamacare, our insurance rates have gone up 300% in 4 years with our deductibles doubling in the same period of time (our deductible is now $12,000 for two people). Universal health insurance, is not provided by some magic money coming from the universe. It is taken from my hard earned dollars and doled out to anyone not earning enough money. The whole system is a mess and filled with incentives to earn less, be less productive and "get what's mine". It's criminal and unjust and yet, we are not rioting in the streets. Sad times are ahead.

(jetsstream, my rant is not directed at you, but I saw an opportunity to cry for justice and I used your question as a platform)
