You can also buy your pump supplies (if you use MiniMed's stuff) 
directly from them via either the 800 number or their web site.  They 
bill the insurance company too.  I like to go direct to the source 
when possible for stuff like this... especiallly when it saves a 
significant amount of money.  The insurance company ok'ed the switch 
in suppliers when I  pointed out the price difference - saved both of 
us quite a bit of money.
