Insulin Pumpers is made possible by your tax deductible contributions.
Your donation of $10, $25, or more... just $1 or $2 per month is
needed so that Insulin Pumpers can continue to serve you and the rest
of the diabetes community. Please visit:

    http://www.insulin-pumpers.org/donate.shtml

Your annual contribution will eliminate this header from your IP mail

The MSRP of the pumps are all with in a few hundred dollars of each other.
The ins company can make an arrangement with a pump company for a lower
price - typically by promising to bring most of the customers to them. 

What you pay has no bearing on the cost of the pump - it has to do with what
your Ins has negotiated.  They are trying to push you to one company or
another - for their own reasons - likely $$

This isn't true.  My insurance would pay all but $600 for a Cozmo.  They
would pay a smaller amount for an Animas, leaving me with a co-pay of
over $3,000.  The pumps do not all have the same SRP and the negotiated
rate by your insurance company isn't the same.
