Re: [IP] switching pumps

I am sure it depends on your insurance company but when I was looking to upgrade they told me they only upgraded or switched if the one you have is out of warranty or if there is a feature in a new pump that is a necessity.  I guess an example of that would be if the person had a hearing problem and the other pump had louder sounds or vibrations-then you would need a doctors note stating the switch is a necessity.  
This is what I was told when I upgraded but every insurance company probably has there own standards.
