Medicare rents the pump for 15 months and pays 80% of the rental and your
insurance should pay the other 20%. If not you pay. After the 15 months the
pump
is yours.
For infusions ect. here again Medicare pays only 80%. Insurance should pay
the
other 20%. Make sure the doctor writes a prescription for each supply you
need
ie. infusions, ect. Be sure it is enough to cover all that you that you will
require for you changes...JIm
