[IP] Medicare and pumps



 Medicare pays a fixed amount for pumps. Currently (FL) $452.02 per month x 13
mos = $5876.26 then it belongs to beneficiary (you). It is up to vendor to
decide what pumps they are willing to provide for that price. Medicare has no
problem with vendor providing a new pump. But supplying an outdated refurb
definitely helps the profit margin.

CCS told me Medicare won't pay for a new pump. Above is the actual truth.
