I thought they decided the other way on this? They were getting more strict on what you could use your HSA on. (Which I think is stupid)

I had Ohio Medicaid with DS and was going back to work FT and the cost of the pump was covered. It was considered a medical device. Sadly, I wore it out, so hopefully, I can get another Rx.

Also, look into WIC if you are eligible. I think the cutoff is 150% of the poverty level. So a family of 4 is around $33K. They will loan you pumps, and they were the ones to give me info on getting a pump with insurance!

When I had my first, Medicaid did not cover pumps (purchase or rental), and wic would only loan you one if you were bfing full time.

For my second, I had teacher insurance, a PISA was covered at the medical supply facility 100% with a prescription.
