SSI with novolog/humalog vs regular insulin
Hi All, I am used to using humalog/novolog insulin for SSI orders. My hospital has regular insulin SSI. Once injected, Regular insulin takes 30 minutes to begin working, peaks between 2 and 4 hours and hangs on for 6 to 8 hours, long after the meal stopped raising the blood sugar. Humalog and Novolog, on the other hand, begin working in about 10 minutes, peaks at one to one and a half hours and are gone in about three and a half to four hours. Just curious to know if you have seen one work... SSI with novolog/humalog vs regular insulin (Source: Student Doctor Network)

How much rounding can one get away with?
Does anyone work for insurance? What if I rounded a Novolog box from 31 days supply to 30 days, will that be charged back during an audit? Is there even a set number days we can round before insurance takes it back? (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Reimbursements on packaged medications
I am confused about how insurance reimburses packaged medications and would like someone clarify it for me. To my understanding, let's say, creams and solutions which comes in different weights like 15g, 30g should have different reimbursement rates right? Does that work the same for solutions and broken insulin pen packages (e.g. 10ml of Novolog dispensed instead of the 15ml?) Thanks (Source: Student Doctor Network)
