Subject: [IP] Training Requirements


> I have a friend who wants to go on the pump. They are requiring her to go
through 2 weeks of training and it costs $1,000. Her insurance doesn't cover
it.
>
> I wasn't required to go through training. The MiniMed trainer came to my
house and 2 1/2 hours later I was "hooked up."
>
> Does anyone know how to get around the training to be able to get the pump
without training?

> 26 years/pumping 7 weeks
