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?

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.

Comment by Laura S. on June 14, 2014 at 7:16pm

I think the cannula was fine. I rarely ever ever bend them. I hope this gets some attention, never had a problem with these before. I told the lady on the phone, it was definitely wobbly. Tne same set gave the two highs, Thursday and Today so.......

Comment by Sam from Alabam on June 14, 2014 at 7:03pm

I have also had bent needles in the transfer guard (the blue thingie that connects the insulin vial to the reservoir) that would keep anything from flowing, either air or insulin.
