Chris,

It is my understanding that Medtronic Diabetes Support can view your CareLink Personal information for the purpose of troubleshooting or providing you with technical assistance.

All other CareLink Personal information covered by Medical Privacy laws, the EULA/Privacy policies, and HIPPA. I know you can choose to release CareLink Personal information with your physician/medical provider to assist with your medical care.

You can get additional information from Medtronic Diabetes support line (phone number on your pump) or the contact number on the CareLink Personal web site.

These comments are based on personal experience only, and are correct to the best of my knowledge. I have used CareLink Personal four years and share data with my physician.

Hope this is helpful.

Chris, you are sharing it with them. On my last two sensor fails, they used my CareLink data to troubleshoot my sensors. I don't know how much else they do with our data, but I will ask some folks when I get a chance, and I will re-read the privacy/EULA notices regarding CareLink. In the U.S., due to HIPPA laws, they can't share it except for limited purposes without identifying the person whose data it is.

Hi guys..
Do I automatically share all my data on CareLink with Medtronic, or is it kept totally private just for me?

Comment by Laura S. on July 3, 2014 at 2:49pm

Fifty percent co-insurance for supplies on my new HMO plan. And new pumps are the same. I hope MM can find me an upgrade in 2015. These rates are not very pretty!

Neil,
If I were you I would press the buttons for the order department that handles customers with regular insurance. Once you have a live person you can discuss your situation with them.

My Medtronic CGMS Transmitter & Sensors just went bad (out of warranty, too) and I'm having a hard time ordering from Medtronic.

I get my supplies through the VA and they don't cover CGM - but I'm willing to pay for it out of pocket. But once Medtronic hears that I am at the VA, they send me to a voicemail line that doesn't give any response.

Any ideas on how I can buy sensors & transmitters?

A year and a half ago I was having the same problem and notified the FDA. I encourage everyone having these problems to do the same. It is not user error.
