Hi everyone, I stumbled across this group and wondered if anyone could offer some advice. I was diagnosed as a type 1 diabetic when I was 9, and by the end of November, I will be turning 25 and I will be off my Mom's insurance. I am currently working but they won't let me work more than 30 hours so they don't have to offer me insurance. I am trying to apply for a full time position within the company but I don't know if that will happen by the cut off date. I currently live at home so rent may be negotiable, but the problem is my twin doesn't and she is also diabetic (we were diagnosed the same day). Does anyone have any suggestions for a general insurance we could apply to that offers good co-pay rates for diabetic supplies? My older sister is also a type 1 diabetic and for a year didn't have insurance and really neglected her treatment to the point that she lost a considerable amount of weight and her stomache almost shut down. I do not want something like that to happen to me or my twin so any suggestions would be much appreciated.
