I have stop using the Cozmo pump since early 2008 and told CCS medical and they keep bother me about Pump Rental? I have my hubby insurance and medicare and got the pump around 2005-06. I even told them I would return the pump to them if they wanted it and they said no, that it was mine to keep.
Another person called today about a so called pump supply bill. I told them that I have not used the pump nor supplies and have not received any supplies since 2008! He then said something that they were research about it.
What can I do about this pump rental, will I be billed forever for this? I even asked them that if I go ahead and pay for this rental would that be the end of it? They could not give me a answer. help someone.
Has anyone found a way to replace the function of the Deltec Hypomanager? I moved from three years on a Deltec 1800 (my first pump) to the OmniPod. I only know two ways to correct hyperglycemia, the 15/15 rule and the HypoManager which worked great and was much more accurate. Without it I feel like I am just flipping a coin.

Thank you for your help,
