Re: [IP] Re: might not be pumping after all!



It is true they will tell you but when I got my MMed pump the Minimed
company told me I would owe $991 which they would let me pay back at $25 per
month interest free until paid or 1 year was over.  However when my  EOB
arrived from Ins I only owed $662. and have NOT been able to get this
straight.  I would definitely get something from Ins next time.  Sharon
