You are  very lucky that your ins pays for 100%.  Mine has a limit

Just got the paper where my insurance company paid for my IR1200  pump.  They 
paid 5,050.  Only bad thing is they didn't pay for  the  supplies that were 
also sent.  Guess I will have to contact   Animas and get them to submit the 
supplies to the right people!
I LOVE my "Annie"!!!!!!  She woke me up at 3:00 AM the other  morning.  
 Cartridge was empty! Took about 12 minutes of chimes to wake me, but I did wake
up!  Gotta love the little machine.  For those  of you trying to decide on a 
 pump, go to the Animas website and play with the virtual pump. I played every
day and read the manual I had downloaded  while I awaited approval for 
 "Annie". Took nine weeks but I got it! I was ready to hookup the day she
Trainer trained me 2 weeks  later!  LOL  I knew most everything but did learn 
some things.
