Blimey hope not!!! Here in UK they're owned by Johnson & Johnson.. It's difficult to imagine as more & more diabetics are starting to use pumps, and in UK it's increasingly the Vibe as people want the Dexcom integration. I know there could be allsorts going on behind the scenes, including expenses we have no idea about, but they do appear to be a major player in the insulin pump field. Hope your educator's wrong :(

The diabetes educator at my endo's office told me today that it is very likely that Animas will go out of business in the near future. Anyone else heard of this?

I'm on hold with the 24 hour technical support now.

Nichole, I believe thats the software/hardware problem code.

Comment by NicholeW28 on August 2, 2014 at 2:06pm

Has anyone encountered a screen that says no delivery 088-85B3? I'm wondering what that code means.

Another way to go is to contact Animas and see if they will walk through it for you. when I got my pump they did it all for me: insurance negotiations, even went to the doctor's office to give him the form to sign! They want their $5,000 after all! But that was before I started Medicare. Dave is right, they will want a c-peptide and you can be making some of your own insulin, but I'm not sure where the cutoff is. Generally, recently diagnosed Type 2's have high c-peptides.

Jesikabeth,

Medicare Part B covers the Animas Ping. Medicare makes you get a C-Peptide lab test which indicates whether your body makes insulin. I've had diabetes for over 40 years and never had that test done previously. As of July, 2011, Medicare did not cover the Omnipod pump.

You really need to contact Humana, since their Gold Choice plan is considered a Medicare Advantage Plan, and may or may not cover what Medicare Part B covers.

Good luck

Hi Everyone! I am in the process of trying to get a pump. I will be dropping off my paperwork with my diabetes center so their rep can get insurance coverage. I am currently looking at the Ping (first option) and Omnipod (second option) and was wondering are they covered under Medicare? I have Medicare as well as a Humana Gold Choice.

i always have a lot of problems connecting the diasend dongel to the one touch! trying to get it going now, does anyone else have these issues?

Comment by Grant A on May 22, 2014 at 10:45am

You also have to remember that some endo's and other doctors get kick backs from other suppliers for recomending their pump and animas might not be one of those with that office. So it isn't always a medical reason they don't offer or try to stier you away from certian meds or pumps etc. it is a business and not just a medical provider.
