I use Edgepark.

Comment by suz on March 10, 2015 at 3:36pm

What supplier delivers Animas Cartridges and Insets, and Dexcom G4 Sensors. And can bill Medicare Part B. Thanks to ObamaCare my insurance company can't cover my pump&CGM supplies. Not even my insulin. I've exhausted every avenue I can find about. Even medicare part B can't direct me to a supplier who supplies Diabetic supplies and can bill Medicarae Part B. Can anyone help me??? I have 6 insets left, 1 vile of Novolog, and no Sensors.

Comment by A. Kelsey Metcalf on February 26, 2015 at 5:26am
The vibe does not come with any dexcom devices. In the box is the pump, a clip, a battery, a rubber shell for the pump, and a verio smart meter if you don't already have one. If you are due for a new transmitter anyway, call dexcom and have it processed regardless of the pump.
Comment by Meda-Kay on February 26, 2015 at 4:57am

Can someone tell me what actually comes in the box with the new Vibe. I'm in a position where I need to order a new dexcom receiver and transmitter and my doc would like me to upgrade to the Vibe. Does the Vibe come with a transmitter? If so, I certainly don't need to order one from dexcom until I find out if my vibe order is approved. Thanks.

Comment by Ellfell on February 1, 2015 at 7:15am

I am a Vibe user and I absolutely love the convenience of having the pump and CGM in one unit. Who wants to carry around multiple devices? When I am at work in a meeting, all I have to do is press one button on the top of the Vibe and I can see my current BG and my IOB. Yes, it's true the the CGM visuals on the Vibe may not be as good as the Dexcom receiver, but if you get your essential information, it doesn't really matter. I believe that the reason that the Vibe does not have the remote is a technical reason - something about not being able to communicate with both the Dexcom sensor and a remote (but I'm not sure). I would rather have the integrated CGM, but everyone has their own priorities.

Comment by Laura S. on January 31, 2015 at 9:09pm

Yep, they always said the remote was no longer going to be available with the Vibe and that was something many many people really liked about the Ping.

Comment by Susan on January 31, 2015 at 5:04pm

Personally, I love hearing the opinions of real people about the new Vibe. Most of us have been looking forward to its US release, and now that it's here I want to know the pros and cons from real users. I love that I can learn how it works and how well it works or dosen't. For example I've learned that the Vibe does not have a remote - possibly a deal breaker for me. I'm not that interested in CGM - but if it sounded like it was easy and fantastic - that would give me food for thought. I really appreciate anything I can learn to help me deal with the Big D.

Comment by Laura S. on January 31, 2015 at 4:20pm

I dont mind people talking about the vibe etc, but I do think people shouldnt act like everyone wants or needs the technology. There are so many considerations..from financial, to personal choice. It's just not meant for everyone nor does everyone care about it. This is more prevalent on other groups than it is here...

Comment by Zoe on January 31, 2015 at 2:29pm
I'm not saying questions about the Vibe are inappropriate here, Shadow Dragon, just expressing my own frustration that the "pump group" I've always enjoyed reading, has turned into more of a "cgm group" that doesn't interest me. It's entirely my personal reaction.
Comment by Shadow on January 31, 2015 at 1:44pm
If my post seemed off-topic, Zoe, I guess I'm surprised. I would have thought a question about the Vibe would have been appropriate in the Animas group.
