Insulin Pump Needed

Hello,My name is Lyn.I am a type two diabetic.Since November, 2017, I have been using this v-go pump. It is a pump that is wearable like a patch, I hope the video will make sense.It is very expensive, and because I am stuck in the coverage gap again (like last year(, with my insurance, I am in desperate need of the funds to continue to be able to get my insulin. When I began wearing V-go in November 2016, my A-1 C came down from 9.2 all the way to 6.2. My last test was at 7.2.After this time, I changed insurance but the device was very expensive and I was in the coverage gap by April.The v-go is costing me $157.00 each month for a 30 day supply. I can get a 90 day supply for about$500. Unfortunately, this is rather expensive, but the very best way for me to receive my insulin and continue to have good results with my doctors. Before the coverage gap, it was costing $88 per month. Please help if you can. I have a long way to go, insurance told me I have at least $4000 before I am out of the coverage gap I have only gotten $500 they tell me. I have tried to apply for what they call extra help. Unfortunately, our household income is bigger than what is allowed. I have tried other avenues, and this was my last resort. If you can help it would be very much appreciated. Thank you for your contribution. I have also priced the flex pens, and they are the same price in the coverage gap. V-go is great. I am giving myself one stick in the morning with a needle instead of five shots one before each meal before snack and my night insulin.
Also, because I have had some changes in my body, I have now been put on Victoza. This in the coverage gap is costing me $300 a month because of the coverage gap. If you can help with either one of these it would be much appreciated. I get some samples from the doctor, but as some of you know who have medical conditions, they do not always get enough samples to help out. Thank you, and please share this campaign if you would not mind.
