Hi from the U.S. where I'm still living because I can't figure out how to make this work. I have Type 1 diabetes which means I use insulin and a pump. The supplies are expensive, about $200 a month WITH my insurance and more than $500 a month without. I checked into Caja, but they only offer a treatment plan that hasn't been used in the U.S. in more than 20 years; i.e., one needle per day and one dose of time-release insulin. This is a brutal way to live so I definitely want to keep my pump, my fast-acting insulin, glucose meter, strips, and lancets. I need insurance to afford it. Since this is a pre-existing condition, I can't use the national health insurance in CR either. My choice is Medicare and a supplemental Medicare Advantage plan. But wait! Medicare won't pay for services provided outside of the U.S., Guam, or Puerto Rica. My supplemental policy might cover me but even if they do, it seems that I will have to submit a bill to Medicare, wait for rejection, resubmit it to Medicare Advantage carrier, and wait for them to decide IF they will pay since Medicare won't. Between the translations, mail issues, waiting, getting a decision, and money out of pocket, it feels like an insurmountable hurdle.
So my question is this: are there any US expats living in CR who have to use their Medicare and/or supplemental insurance? If so, how is it done? I considered using an address in the U.S. and having my stuff shipped to me but there are issues with that also (Medicare fraud, customs, heat during shipment, etc.) Can anybody shed some light on this topic? I would so appreciate it.
