My insurance paid 100% for my pump/supplies, so I didn't get charged 
anything.  I did see the EOB with Minimed's claim to my insurance and 
the sets, reservoirs and IV Prep wipes were all submitted for 
payment.  My insurance paid their set rate to Minimed for each item 
(pump, sets, reservoirs, wipes) and the rest was written off.  I've 
been saving my EOBs just in case Minimed tries to bill me for the 
difference in another year or two!
