My insurance will not cover any of these two items. My Urilogist office manager is helping me file an appeal. Pump is $400 and pills $10 so out of pocket does not seem like a good idea.
I cannot believe Ins will not cover these items. As for me I have never had any experience with the pump. I have heard it does work, although if you have not tried the ED drugs I would try them first.
The Dr did tell me that a person should not eat a heavy meal or greasy one such as hamburgers or the result would not be satisfactory. Some people have indicated a headache from taking the drugs, but I would think that would be a small price to pay.
I know a man who has an extra never used pump who gets them free thru veterans administration and he might be willing to sell it pretty reasonably priced. I had insurance once but it did not cover the pills and in my case they do not help much so I have just given up trying which is not the end of the world. Let me know if you might be interested and I will try to help you. Good luck. Mark
