Type 1 Diabetes and St. Croix
Forgot this important note from my first post.... Sorry.
I am a Type 1 Diabetic who uses and insulin pump. How easy would it be to get prescription(s) on St. Croix for my Humalog Insulin and Freelance Test Strips for my meter ( to monitor my blood sugar)? Also, how easy is it to see a doctor (of any kind)?
Do companies offer health insurance for permanent employees?
I don't know if this is important, but my pump is called the Omnipod and is from a company called Insulet.
Any and all information will be appreciated.
You could also look into having your supplies mailed to you. There are lots of big companies out there that do it fairly cheaply. Of course, you'd have to do some research on who ships to the VI and what they charge!
I filled a prescription (though not for insulin) during my PMV, and it was a lot cheaper and easier than I expected. I went to the pharmacy in Sunny Isle (can't remember what it was called). They took my insurance and filled it right there while I waited for about 10 minutes or so. That was in the middle of the day, midweek... maybe it's different at 5:15 on a Friday!
I'm not sure what to tell you to expect overall, but for what it's worth, my job on STX will include health insurance coverage.
No, unfortunately not. My field is more computer related. However, I am a quick learn! I can learn anything... as we all can. Keep that in mind. Or, if there is a "starting" position and I can move up from there... that is not a problem either.
I did ask my job if there is a way I could telecommute and because we deal with a lot of "personal information", they say it would be too much of a "security" issue. I can understand that, but come on, I have been with this company for 2.5 years! Oh well, at least I asked.
