[IP] Weekly Chats and DISETRONIC Tonight



Pumpers and Friends, 

Okay, you chataholics--we now have chats every day of the week. 
Below is IP's schedule of weekly, moderated (i.e., you know there'll 
be at least one other person in the room!) chat times. The chat 
rooms are open anytime, to any member, so feel free to chat 
whenever. Also, these times below don't change, so mark your 
calendars--if you miss one this week, there's always another at the 
same time next week.  

Please remember that the chatrooms are open 24/7. If you need to 
talk or can't sleep, feel free to drop a note to the list that you are in 
chat and what room you are in and just wait someone will come. IP 
has members from all over the world someone is always up! When 
I was in hospital, I chatted with peoples from UK, Germany, and 
OZ. They were my lifelines to the world. And now that I'm home 
24/7, I am on-line most of the time. I know that members from 
other parts of the world, do chat so if you like to set up a time and 
day you would like to host a chat send me a note (IP has a great 
group of chat hosts that would love to help you start a new chat 
and all it takes is some time management). Remember that all 
chats are available in the MEMBERS only area of the web site. 
You can view the transcripts of all chat sessions in the archives for 
later reference. Most of the time when we have a guest speaker in 
chat they take place in the Guest Room.  

FYI: All chats on IP are setup for start time in USA Eastern time 
zone; ie: 9P.M. EDT OR 8P.M. CDT OR 7P.M. MDT OR 6P.M. 
PDT OR IF YOU ARE IN THE UK IT WOULD BE THE NEXT DAY 
AT 2A.M.(5 HOURS AHEAD) OR IN GERMANY THE NEXT DAY 
AT 3A.M.(6 HOURS AHEAD)SO IF YOU MISS ONE CHAT, 
transcripts of all chat sessions are in the archives for later 
reference.

DISETRONIC - on the July 9 at 9 P.M. EST (2A.M. GMT) in the 
GUEST ROOM.  

The subject will be Medicare and Pumps and it will be hosted by 
Tim Smith, their Billing Manager and internal Medicare Specialist. 
Medicare is currently implementing some changes in their policies 
with respect to medical criteria for insulin pumps so it should be 
interesting both for people with Medicare coverage who are thinking 
about getting a pump as well as for those already on a pump who 
will become eligible for Medicare coverage soon.
