Have you had the sales rep for your pump help you with the insurance
company?? When I got my MiniMed this past May, all I had to do is talk to
the sales person... he took care of the insurance papers, and made sure
doctor's letter had all the buzz-words that the insurance company wanted
hear. If there were any battles, I didn't hear about them... 6 weeks later
my pump was here. 

If your pump sales person won't (or can't) do this for you, try another
pump company. MiniMed &amp Disetronics are quite competitive. What one
won't do the other will.
