Re: [IP] Re:Does anyone insure their insulin pump?



Speaking of breaking their pumps..............my son dropped his on the
hard wood floor the other day.........the screen part now has a crack.
Minimed said as long as the screen didn't 'bleed' that it was ok.  It makes
me very nervous though!!  They said their warranty didn't cover drops!
