My CDE just mentioned this when I saw her on Monday.  She said that 
she saw the new sensor/transmitter combo and thought of me.  She was 
urging me to think about using it.  She didn't say when it would be 
out but said that there would be a big demand, and I should request 
it right away, before it's out.

It sounds great, but right now I couldn't even afford the $xxx 
($300?) dollars it would cost just to upgrade my pump to the 722 
through the Pathway program.  And if insurance isn't going to cover 
the sensors, then there's no use upgrading the pump because I 
certainly can't afford to pay for them.

If I knew that my insurance would cover the consumables, I'd really 
try to scrape up the money for the pump upgrade.  I know some people 
have had luck getting them covered so maybe I'll check the mail 
archives and read those messages again.
