Re: [IP] What type of pump to get

Call your insurance company and ask them what the qualifications they need
for you to get a pump. The pump company might be telling you that you need
to see a specialist when your insurance might not require it.  If you have
your primary D doctor, that might work. Just talk to the durable medical
department with your insurance carrier for the low down.

Hi, David.  I am in the same boat as you.  I hope we get some information on
what pump to buy.  I've contacted 2 companies to send me information and
will talk to my doctor in the new year about getting a pump.  Did you have
to go to a diabetic specialist to get your pump?  This is what they are
telling me I have to do, but seeing that the closest one is 300 miles away,
and I live in snow country and can't depend on the roads, I have decided to
put it off till spring.  I would truly like to buy a pump "now" and would if
humanly possible.  That's why I want to know if your family doctor
prescribed the pump or what you had to do to get it.
