Becca, do you mean that variable rate of insulin use was what they 
used to deny coverage??  That is completely counter to what the pump 
is all about!    We use pumps so that we can live our life the way we 
want, eat when we want and NOT eat when we want.   Being on a long 
term insulin (even Lantus) you have to do what the insulin tells you. 
Being on a pump, you tell the insulin when to work and when not to. 
Grrrrrr.   If that really was the reason, then they showed total 
stupidity!  Grrrrrr.   Please tell me if I misunderstood.    :>)
