I was told by my VA PCP that they would approve my insulin pen. I provided him my outside medical records then I receive a call that they won't approve it. They want me to switch to a new medicine and stop the insulin pen so they can pay for it. Over the last 3 months my Blood Glucose has dropped 250 points from 400 to 150. I am pissed that I am service connected for Diabetes and they refuse. I was told that I was denied for the pen because I was not blind and I can give my own meds.
Is this normal by the VA? I got pissed off and wrote my congressman and emailed every director at my local VA.
