"I am going to get my Animas supplies from Byram next time. All they do is send the order to the doctor and they sign it. So much easier than my provider having to send something to Animas. I have had no problems with the either until the past year."

"Michael, Did Animas or someone else get your supplies to you? I hope so, but your last status of "still waiting on insurance authorization" was less hopeful than it perhaps could have been. Frankly, I'm not sure what I'd if I was…"

Animas no longer delivers to Texas ?!

I had a WTF moment today when I realized I was down to my last infusion set and hadn't received the supplies I'd ordered more than two weeks ago from Animas.  For four years, they've always delivered quickly.I called them and asked what the holdup might be and they told me that they no longer deliver to Texas and had simply forgotten to tell me.  They directed me to call CCS Medical.Totally aside from being furious with them for accepting an order and not telling me that they could not fill it,…See More
