RE: [IP] Getting a pump for through the VA for a Type 2?


The only VA that I know of that has a pump program is in Cincinnati.  They
are using Minimed 508s.  I don't know which VA your friend is going to, but
he may need to get a referral to the endo clinic at VAMC Cincinnati.

This is for a "FOAF" (friend of a friend)

This FOAF has been hospitalized 6 times in the past year for uncontrolled 
BGs.  He's Type 2, and on insulin.  My friend told him about the pump, and 
he is interested in looking into one, but no one at the VA hospital he is 
currently in knows anything at all about pumps, including how to go about 
requisitioning one.  Can someone summarize or point me to info on getting a 
pump through the VA?
