Re: [IPk] Disetronic vs. Minimed

Hi everyone

Yes you are quite right, the current Disetronic package is a two pump set,
each pump lasting 2 years, total 4 years use, however we are in the process
of having our policy updated.  The new policy is drafted and will be
finalised by the end of November, and will be something in line with the
current Minimed package.

As soon as life expectancies and figures are confirmed and approved by our
Swiss counterparts, then I will advise you again, in the meantime, I would
recommend waiting to see what is offered.

Any further queries, please feel free to ask.

Kind regards
