We have twin girls with CF. They are 11 months old and after battling with ng feeds for the last 10 months- they had Mini One tubes placed last week. Going into the surgery- the doctors told us that we would have 3 mini ones covered each year through insurance. But now as we are trying to get our replacements ordered- insurance is telling us that they only cover $36 of the $190 cost because that is what the government says a g tube should cost. Does this sound accurate based on anyone's experiences? We do not qualify for gov't assistance through SSI, BCMH, or Medicaid. Any thoughts or ideas or similar experiences would be helpful.
