Re:[IP] news worth sharing; Novolog approval for pumps

Hi all,
    We're concerned that since NovoLog in the only APPROVED insulin for
insulin pump use, all insurance companies will decide it will be the only
one for which they'll pay when you use a pump.  This would be a financial
boost for them if a pumper decides not to try NovoLog or if you have
problems using it (as some people have found), since they still could claim
that it's the only one covered since you use an insulin pump....
