Re: [IP] Re: Medicare and pumps



It was every 4 years for a new pump for me until I went on Medicare...now 5
years...even though I had purchased my original pump before Medicare.  They
made me wait an additional year. I was fortunate my original Animas pump went
the extra year without problems.  I now have it as a backup for my Animas
Ping.


Diane from MI  pumping since 06

If using private insurance it is every 4 years that a new pump can be
purchased
but there are variances
