Outpatient IV Insulin Therapy: has anyone tried it?
My husband has PN. He was sent to a pain management specialist, who wants to do Outpatient IV Insulin Therapy. The Dr. stated it’s covered by Medicare. We are leery. For starters, a Google search revealed a CMS memo from 2009 denying coverage for the procedure. Further, my husband is “only” prediabetic. He has never had high numbers and has maintained dietary control for over a decade. We’re not sure he’s a good candidate for this time intensive treatment, even if it were in fact covered by Medicare. Do any of you have experience with this procedure? Thank you!
