Thanks, Meda-Kay - good to know. And I think your endo is right. People are certainly lobbying for Medicare to cover CGM's but with all the baby boomers coming of age, I'm just happy if Medicare doesn't go broke! (I know, think positive!)

Comment by Meda-Kay on October 9, 2014 at 5:03pm

Me too Zoe. I may just stick with the Ping. I really haven't decided. I'm about three years away from Medicare so it will be a consideration down the road. My endo says a lot can happen in three years. They are pushing for Medicare to pay for CGM's. If that passes, I would be in good shape. I've always said that if I had to give up one device, it will be the CGM. I won't give up my pump. It's made too much of an improvement in my control and life in general. I think we should be good with the Ping. Animas reps have told me we would have the option to maintain the Ping and Dexcom separate and not upgrade. I know you don't use the CGM, but I think that also means that they will support the Ping by itself in the future.

solve...not sold.

We were able to get a Ping in January. I hope they sold the RF issue and realize how important the remote is to people. It's great with a young child.

Comment by Zoe on October 9, 2014 at 4:54pm

I'm not interested in a CGM (and Medicare wouldn't pay for it if I was!) so I will just get another Ping with remote. I just hope they continue supporting it as it becomes "outdated technology"

Comment by Meda-Kay on October 9, 2014 at 4:43pm

Ron, the Vibe, when it eventually comes out, will not have a meter remote. The remote for the Ping won't work with it nor will the verio meter work with it. I just had this conversation with Animas today. If I'm not badly mistaken, the problem comes in with radio frequency of both the meter and the Dexcom sensor...can't do both. I'm really disappointed to lose my remote as well.

Comment by Ron on October 9, 2014 at 12:19pm

Anyone hear if they are planning to have the verio meter work with the animas pump (ping or vibe whenever that is) the same way the onetouch ping meter works? It seems that right now its talk to the pump or my iPhone. Can we not have both? It would seem to me that I both would be a no brainer....

I've had a Ping for four years and have had nothing but excellent customer service from Animas. In fact, I'm in the process of ordering a new one. I tried the T:Slim, but wasn't happy with it. I think I would really miss the remote since I use it 99% of the time.

Comment by Laura S. on August 23, 2014 at 7:59pm

Loved the ping, love the whole deal. But ran into terrible customer service issues about three years back. In all sorts of ways.

What negative experiences have you run into using the Ping system, Laura S? I've had one for a while and so far pretty satisfied so just curious. Are you comfortable sharing some specifics? Thanks!
