My insurance company is STILL looking into getting me the new pump. Not much progress on that front -- the woman who called today wasn't even clear what kind of pump I was looking for. So I told her to check out the Animas pump again, but also suggested she get info for me on the MiniMed, since that's what my doctor likes. I also put a call in to his office asking whether he would prefer I get a MiniMed this time.
The only drawback on getting the MiniMed is that I have lots of Animas IR1250 supplies. But if my insurance agent was correct, the supplies have zero deductible.
