Re: [IP] Re: trading pumps

My insurance company had no problem with my going from a Disetronic H-tron to 
a new Minimed 508.  If your endo is good in dealing with the insurance 
people, he can 'word' the letter carefully

 is that I don't think your friend's insurance can upgrade a MiniMed (not 
 waterproof) with a Disetronic (waterproof); this would be more like a new 
 purchase than an upgrade. >>
