Re: [IP] Medtronic Supplies

Hi Jo, my insurance (Kaiser) doesn't cover batteries or IV Prep, so I have
to buy them on my own.  I never thought to buy batteries online, so I'd be
interested as to what you find out?  Right now, I just order Smith + Nephew
Skin Prep (not IV prep because of some reason pharmacies can never find it
in the book to special order it) at Walgreens; and I buy batteries at
Walgreens too, or from Minimed.
ciao, Brian
