I am on the Medtronic Minimed Paradigm Insulin pump. Since I have had trouble getting DME that I can afford, I have depended on the kindness of others in the last 6 months. I was told by my Medtronic nurse educator to call and talk to the financial people at Medtronic. I finally called them and they sent me a one-page form which I filled out. Less than 2 weeks after mailing it back in, I get a letter from them saying that I qualify for their financial assistance. I don't know what or how much yet because I have yet to place an order.
So, if you're dealing with Medtronic and are having difficulty, call them. They can say YES or NO and a "NO" never hurt anyone for long!! I thank God and my nurse for the friendly advice.
