    My mom has diabetes and she is a senior citizen. She has medicare which only pays for her doctor visits. She gets social security every month but she can't afford to buy her insulin and all the other supplies she needs. Is there any resources out there that would help her purchase these things.

    but if I recall right medicare should cover all expenses for diabetics. I did homehealth nrsg for yrs, I don't recall exactly, but I'm almost positive medicare did cover these things. It wouldn't hurt to call up and ask to speak to a representative, just to confirm again one way or the other. (There is also a comercial out here in Calif. that spoke of medicare, diabetics & supplies...there are ways to even get her supplies sent right ot her house!)I would try calling again.

    The pharmaceutical companies have free meds for people who qualify, but the whole thing starts with paperwork from the doc's office. Good luck.
