I am type 2 and want to start on the Omnipod but my insurance wont cover it because im type 2 instead of type 1. Is there ways around this? I ordered the trial pod and think it would be much better than 6 injections a day.. Any advice on how to get a pump with another insurance company or another loop hole that I'm not aware of?

I think most of the pump companies have people who work on the insurance part. You should contact Insulet and see what help they could provide. I think they work with both your doctor and the insurance company. I might be wrong about all of that but I dont think so. If it turns out that I am wrong you should come back and post that. Actually you should come back and post the outcome either way. It might help someone else down the road.
