Emily replied to S Lew's discussion 'Omni Pad and Dex Com' in the group OmniPod Users
"While it seems apparent that many users of insulin pumps and CGMs are very happy with using both systems together, I just can't bring myself to attach a second device. I'm a 6-year Omnipod user, but I won't be getting a CGM anytime…"

Emily replied to Delilah Brien's discussion 'Anyone figure out a way to OPT OUT of the endless "confirmation" steps on the new PDM?' in the group OmniPod Users
"I might be totally mistaken, but I could have sworn someone (either my Dr. or Insulet rep, can't remember) told me that it's okay if some "small" bubbles are in the syringe because the pod itself removes air bubbles during the…"

Emily replied to Christine's discussion 'Luv new smaller pods' in the group OmniPod Users
"Just transferred to the new system on Sunday, and I LOVE the smaller pods too! Even bumped into a door frame (not on purpose; I'm a klutz), and didn't knock off my pod thanks to its slimmer profile. :) The extra confirmation prompts on the…"

Emily replied to Agswin04's discussion 'Airport Security' in the group OmniPod Users
"I traveled to Ireland last year and to California last month. International security was a breeze - they didn't check or question my Pods (the one I was wearing or packed in my carry-on), medication or PDM. When I traveled to Cali, I told…"

Emily replied to Jen's discussion 'New, smaller Omnipod arrived!' in the group OmniPod Users
"After reading through the posts to this thread, I totally agree with y'all that Insulet has and is handling the new PDM/Pod rollout terribly. I haven't been up-to-date on the new system's availability recently. Just prior to coming to…"

Emily replied to Tracy's discussion 'Are there any T1 happy with Omnipod?' in the group OmniPod Users
"I've had my Omnipod since I was diagnosed with T1 in 2008. As other posters have said, it may not be perfect, but I wouldn't trade it for anything! I've been very happy with my Omnipod, and the Insulet Company reps have been great to…"

"I have UMR and UnitedHealthcare PPO, and use Edgepark for my pod re-orders. My plan considers the pods as supplies, and charges me 20% after deductible. Hope this helps."

Emily replied to Emily's discussion 'Cost of pod refills raised again' in the group OmniPod Users
"Ah, that's what it was... I did get 4 boxes instead of my usual 3. Silly me... I just panicked when I saw the $1800 amount. Sorry for the false alarm! So, I called Insulet to see why they sent 4 boxes instead of 3, since I've never gotten…"

MidwestMommy replied to Emily's discussion 'Cost of pod refills raised again' in the group OmniPod Users
"Are you sure you only got 3 boxes? The pricing works out perfectly to 4 boxes at $450 retail price. The price per box was $450 retail last month. I think they just sent you an extra box..."

Lorraine replied to Emily's discussion 'Cost of pod refills raised again' in the group OmniPod Users
"Wow. That's quite a significant difference. You always get 30 pods and your insurance hasn't changed? I thought they negotiate different prices with different insurance companies. To change that much without a change in insurance or…"

Cost of pod refills raised again

I received a bill from Insulet for my recent pod refill. A three-month supply (30 pods) has increased from $1350 to $1800. I love my Omnipod, but wow. Not looking forward to getting my insurance EOB.
