What is Insulin Pump Therapy?

What is Insulin Pump Therapy?

February 29, 2024

A Type 1 diabetes diagnosis brings the potential for lifelong challenges, including the constant need for insulin management, increased susceptibility to complications, and the emotional toll of living with a chronic condition.

Opting for insulin pump therapy provides a secure and straightforward approach to enhance glucose control, offering a proactive solution for managing diabetes effectively.

Choosing insulin pump therapy presents a reliable and uncomplicated method to improve control over glucose levels, providing a proactive and efficient solution for the effective management of diabetes.

What is insulin pump therapy?

What is insulin pump therapy, and what is an insulin pump?

An insulin pump is a small electronic device that delivers insulin continuously. It’s a valuable tool for individuals with Type 1 diabetes who require insulin therapy. The device consists of three main components: an insulin reservoir, a pump mechanism, and a catheter that delivers the insulin into your body. It’s designed to mimic the functioning of a healthy pancreas.

The pump delivers insulin through a small tube, known as a catheter, which is inserted under the skin. The placement of the catheter is flexible, allowing you to rotate the infusion site and minimize the risk of irritation. The pump can deliver different basal rates throughout the day, adjusted to match your specific insulin needs. It can also deliver bolus doses of insulin to cover meals or correct high blood sugar levels.

Using an insulin pump requires regular monitoring and adjustments. It’s important to work closely with your healthcare team to ensure proper pump management and achieve optimal results.

Can you get a free breast pump through Medicaid?

Can you get a free breast pump through Medicaid?

February 13, 2024

Sometimes determining if your Medicaid will cover a breast pump can seem confusing. Simple question, right? But the answer isn’t necessarily as easy.

Let Edwards Health Care Services help you determine your benefits and eligibility.

breast pumps through medicaid, Can you get a free breast pump through Medicaid?

One easy way to find out is by completing our online application. EHCS will research your Medicaid plan and work with them to confirm your benefits and determine which breast pumps you’re eligible for.

One might assume it’s a straightforward matter, but the reality is more nuanced. According to the Health Insurance Association of America, Medicaid is basically a government-sponsored insurance program for folks of any age who don’t have enough resources and income to cover their healthcare costs. Under the Affordable Care Act, you can qualify for Medicaid if you make less than 133 percent of the federal poverty line. Currently nearly 70 million people (or 1 in 5 Americans) are enrolled in a Medicaid plan or Children’s Health Insurance Program.

Because plans are run by their states, eligibility and offerings differ across the United States. What you’re eligible for in Maine may not be the same as in Arizona. It may be confusing, but EHCS can help clarify things! We work closely with government and private insurance plans to provide covered medical supplies — including breast pumps — to eligible members.

We carry name-brand pumps!

APPLY ONLINE

Below is a sampling of the breast pumps that may be covered by a Medicaid plan. Please reach out to our breast pump team if you have questions about your eligibility or a specific pump. You may also apply online to get the process started.

Medicaid programs are funded by state and federal dollars, but states manage their own programs, which is partly why it’s hard to say, “yes, Medicaid covers breast pumps.” Another issue is that some states used managed care organizations (MCOs) to administrate their Medicaid programs, and each of those has its own rules.

The good news is that many state and managed Medicaid programs cover breast pumps, and your local WIC (Women, Infants and Children) office will be a great help in breastfeeding successfully.

So defining Medicaid isn’t simple, but finding out if you’re covered is. Edwards Health Care Services (EHCS) is in network with more than 40 state Medicaid programs (including plans in Ohio, Kentucky, Michigan, Massachusetts, Texas, Illinois, Virginia, South Carolina, Indiana, and more) throughout the United States, and they each have different guidelines.

Typically, Medicaid programs will not cover the breast pump until the baby is born, but we can help you get the process started so all you have to do is let us know when the baby arrives! We will handle the paperwork between Medicaid and your doctor’s office (a prescription for a breast pump is required), while you focus on getting ready for your new baby!

Find Out If Your Medicaid Covers Breast Pumps ?

We carry several Medicaid-approved, double-electric breast pumps, and we’re happy to talk with you about which pumps meet your eligibility requirements and needs. Email us here or apply for a breast pump now!

Why Should I Get a CGM?

Why Should I Get a CGM?

February 20, 2023

While today’s glucose meters make things much easier, it can still be a pain to constantly check your blood sugar. What if you had a way to continuously monitor your blood glucose without getting out your meter and test strips all the time? And what if you (or your loved ones) could be alerted to changes? That’s what “continuous glucose monitoring” – or CGM – is all about.

Why should I get a CGM, and what is continuous glucose monitoring? Find out how to get a CGM from EHCS.

When you really look at what continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) is all about, it becomes clear why so many people tout their importance in managing their diabetes. First let’s start with defining CGM: A CGM is a small, wearable device that tracks glucose throughout the day and night, notifying you of highs and lows so you can, if needed, act immediately. CGM minimizes the guesswork for better diabetes management. The CGM is made of a sensor and a receiver. The flexible sensor (smaller than a syringe) goes into your skin every couple of weeks, and once it’s in, you won’t feel a thing. The receiver is smaller than a smartphone and lets you see what’s going on with a nifty graph. CGMs often connect to smartphones and tables so that you can access and share info in real-time (this is great for a loved one whose blood sugar you need to monitor regularly). Dexcom created the video below to explain how CGM therapy works:

Why Order From EHCS?

Learn More About Us

What is Continuous Glucose Monitoring?

Continuous glucose monitoring gives you a complete picture of your glucose, showing you where it is going and how fast it’s getting there. People who use a CGM as part of their diabetes management find that CGMs:

  • Can help lower A1C in adults 25+ with type 1 diabetes (when used with insulin regimens, according to a public comment and response by the Washington State Healthcare Authority)

  • Read glucose regularly, which allows the wearer to keep an eye on glucose, catching highs and lows more quickly and identifying trends

  • Alert the wearer to highs and lows more quickly so you can make changes quickly

  • Track data better, which makes life easier for wearers, doctors, parents, etc.

  • Provide better insight into how lifestyle affects diabetes management

While CGM is most often used for people with Type 1 diabetes, many people (especially those using insulin) will find a CGM helpful in managing diabetes. In fact, a recent study conducted at the University of British Columbia found that a CGM helped people with Type 2 diabetes and prediabetes stick to an exercise plan, which helps control their health.

How to get a CGM

Now it’s easy to get started! Just fill out this enrollment form, and our Diabetes Care Advisors (DCAs) will help you with every step of the insurance process. We carry CGMs from the major manufacturers including the Abbott FreeStyle Libre systems, the Dexcom G6 and G7 systems, and the Medtronic Guardian Connect. We work with hundreds of insurances, including Medicare, that cover CGM therapy for those who qualify. Your DCA will determine your benefits and then act on your behalf throughout the insurance authorization process. We will work with you and your healthcare team to ensure you received the best product suited for your specific needs.

For additional information on insurance plans that EHCS accepts, call us at 1-888-344-3434 or email us at dca@myehcs.com. If you’re ready to find out if your insurance covers a CGM, fill out the enrollment form and we’ll get the process started.

How does continuous glucose monitoring work?

How does continuous glucose monitoring work?

May 05, 2022

Glucose meters tend to make testing easier, but it can still be painful to constantly prick fingers for testing, especially for high-frequency testers. Now, there is a way to avoid unnecessary fingersticks: continuous glucose monitoring (CGM). A CGM captures your blood sugar levels and shows whether it is increasing, decreasing, or remaining steady.

how does continuous glucose monitoring work, how do cgms work

If you’re wondering how continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) helps you gain better control of your diabetes, you’re in the right place! The ability to identify trends in your blood glucose levels is a critical piece of diabetes management and will help you make informed decisions to prevent lows, extreme highs, and erratic blood sugars. This additional information also helps you better understand how insulin, food, exercise, and other variables affect glucose values. View our top brands of CGMs!

How Does A CGM Work?

A Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM) generally consists of a sensor, transmitter, and receiver. With most CGMs, users wear a small sensor on top the skin that they replace every couple of weeks. The sensor reads the user’s interstitial fluid to detect glucose levels, and the attached transmitter sends the sensor’s readings to the receiver or smartphone app (and in some cases, smartwatch). This makes it easy for the user to see their blood sugar data at any time. The user can also easily download and share the data with their healthcare team so that they fine-tune their diabetes treatment.

how does continuous glucose monitoring work, how do cgms work

A new implantable CGM system called Eversense E3 works a little differently than traditional CGMs. The Eversense E3 sensor lasts 180 (!) days and is inserted via a quick in-office procedure. You’ll wear a transmitter over the insertion location, which will send your glucose readings to an app on your smartphone. If you’re interested in Eversense E3, talk to your endocrinologist first to determine the best way to get started.

Studies show that CGMs can reduce A1C levels, provide better glycemic control, and supply physicians with more data to make better-informed treatment decisions.

See Your Sugar Levels And Insulin Delivery Right On Your Smartphone!

The MiniMed™ 770G system, sometimes referred to as a hybrid closed loop system, automatically adjusts delivery of basal (background) insulin based on CGM sensor glucose values. This means that the pump gets glucose readings from the CGM automatically, and then delivers a variable rate of insulin 24 hours a day based on your personal needs.** This integrated system – meaning having a pump and a CGM that speak to one another – may help reduce both high and low glucose levels.**

You can even stay up-to-date on your glucose trends and insulin delivery 24/7 using the MiniMed™ Mobile app for iOs and Android. This system adapts to your unique needs, so you can focus on living your life and worrying less about managing your diabetes!

Multiple Features Make Managing Your Diabetes Easier:

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION: MINIMED™ 770G SYSTEM WITH SMARTGUARD™ TECHNOLOGY

 The MiniMed™ 770G system is intended for continuous delivery of basal insulin (at user selectable rates) and administration of insulin boluses (in user selectable amounts) for the management of type 1 diabetes mellitus in persons two years of age and older requiring insulin as well as for the continuous monitoring and trending of glucose levels in the fluid under the skin. The MiniMed™ 770G System includes SmartGuard™ technology, which can be programmed to automatically adjust delivery of basal insulin based on continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) sensor glucose values (SG) and can suspend delivery of insulin when the SG value falls below or is predicted to fall below predefined threshold values.

The Medtronic MiniMed™ 770G System consists of the following devices: MiniMed™ 770G Insulin Pump, the Guardian™ Link (3) Transmitter, the Guardian™ Sensor (3), one-press serter, the Accu-Chek® Guide Link blood glucose meter, and the Accu- Chek®Guide Test Strips. The system requires a prescription.

The Guardian™ Sensor (3) has not been evaluated and is not intended to be used directly for making therapy adjustments, but rather to provide an indication of when a fingerstick may be required. All therapy adjustments should be based on measurements obtained using a blood glucose meter and not on values provided by the Guardian™ Sensor (3).

All therapy adjustments should be based on measurements obtained using the Accu-Chek® Guide Link blood glucose meter and not on values provided by the Guardian™ Sensor (3). Always check the pump display to ensure the glucose result shown agrees with the glucose results shown on the Accu-Chek® Guide Link blood glucose meter. Do not calibrate your CGM device or calculate a bolus using a blood glucose meter result taken from an alternative site. It is not recommended to calibrate your CGM device when sensor or blood glucose values are changing rapidly, e.g., following a meal or physical exercise.

WARNING: Do not use the MiniMed™ 770G system until appropriate training has been received from a healthcare professional. Training is essential to ensure the safe use of the MiniMed™ 770G system.

 Pump therapy is not recommended for people whose vision or hearing does not allow recognition of pump signals and alarms. Pump therapy is not recommended for people who are unwilling or unable to maintain contact with their healthcare professional.
