Unicornzzz replied to Aussie's discussion 'Pump vs Pen' in the group Pumping Our Insulin
"You can have it attached to your belt like a cell phone. It is about the size of a small cell phone, you can put it in your pants pocket or if you are a female you can put it in a baby sock and stick it in your bra. That is if you have a tubed one.…"

Unicornzzz replied to Aussie's discussion 'Pump vs Pen' in the group Pumping Our Insulin
"How about you do not have to worry about attaching a needle to the pen, the alcohol wipe, no having to find a place to give yourself a shot. You just take your glucose level, push a few buttons on the pump and you are done. You switch out the…"

Unicornzzz replied to Aussie's discussion 'Pump vs Pen' in the group Pumping Our Insulin
"I have much better control with the pump. You are only using the fast acting insulin with the pump so it is much easier. I like the fact that there is only one injection every three days. You fill up your pump for what you are going to use for those…"

Unicornzzz replied to Avi e's discussion 'choosing the right pump for my daughter' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"I would say yes for any person taking MDI. Talk with your endo. and see how they feel about it. You need to make sure your doctor is pro pumps for children. You need to see which pump they are more comfortable with. Check with your insurance company…"

Unicornzzz replied to KrabbyKelly's discussion 'hard will it be to get a pump?' in the group Pumping Our Insulin
"I got to pick which pump I wanted. I like my Medtronic pump. It will all depend on your insurance company as to if and how much they will pay for it. It is worth the fight. I did the pills, I did the shots and I have been on a pump for 4 years and I…"

Unicornzzz replied to Ericka Bryant's discussion 'BCBS (NC) insurance with Medtronic' in the group Pumping Our Insulin
"You will want doctor to write a letter of necessity for your pump and the CGM at the same time. They need to include that the CGM is a medical necessity for you and why. If BCBS denies it appeal, appeal and appeal some more until you get what you…"

Unicornzzz replied to Ericka Bryant's discussion 'BCBS (NC) insurance with Medtronic' in the group Pumping Our Insulin
"A pump is considered a durable medical supply so if it is more than your deductible all you will have to do is pay your deductible for the pump."

Unicornzzz replied to Ericka Bryant's discussion 'BCBS (NC) insurance with Medtronic' in the group Pumping Our Insulin
"I do not have a deductible on my durable medical supplies. May I suggest that you make sure all of the paperwork is completed, approved and on file before you have Medtronic send you anything. If you have to talk to either BCBS or Medtronic make…"

Unicornzzz replied to Ericka Bryant's discussion 'BCBS (NC) insurance with Medtronic' in the group Pumping Our Insulin
"i have dealt with BCBS of GA & TX. I live in GA but my husbands company is out of TX. How much BCBS will cover all depends on the policy your company has with BCBS. I would get a case manager from BCBS before you go any further. Have BCBS tell…"

Unicornzzz replied to M裏Çhïêvðµ§'s discussion 'Infusion Sets!' in the group Pumping Our Insulin
"I like the Animas sets. They will send you free sets with a RX. I found out that I am allergic to the adhesive on the IV3000s and I am allergic to the prep wipes. I have to change out my sets every 2 days."

Unicornzzz replied to Geoffrey Steinman's discussion 'Contour NEXT USB (Link Meter) pouch' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"No, the USB and the USB Next Link do not use the same strips. Call Bayer and explain your situation. They may or may not sent you a USB Next Link but they probably will send you a Next or a Next EZ. They make money off of you using their strips and…"

Unicornzzz replied to Geoffrey Steinman's discussion 'Contour NEXT USB (Link Meter) pouch' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"Scott E, I would call back and hope that I spoke to a different customer service clerk. The first clerk I talked with did not know what I was talking about but the second one did. The new case does not come in the grey. You will have to pick…"

"Have you tried Mastisol? You would use it after you insert the sensor."

Unicornzzz replied to Patrick Hebert's discussion 'Glucometer Recycling & Generic Test Strips'
"For me the generic strips are more expensive because my insurance company will not pay for them. I use a mail order pharmacy. My pharmacy will also not honor the rebates if they come in the little card form. The rebates have to look like check. I…"

Unicornzzz replied to Geoffrey Steinman's discussion 'Contour NEXT USB (Link Meter) pouch' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"Call Bayer Customer Service. You will need to tell them that you do not want the Next Link USB case, you want the case for the USB meter. The Next Meter case is the same one that comes with the Next Link Meter. It has the little plastic sleeve that…"

Unicornzzz replied to Sandy's discussion 'Brand new to pumping with a TON of questions!!' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"Keep fighting for the CGM it is well worth it. Give your glucose levels a few days for it to level out and you will feel like a totally new person. Please remember the more you test the more likely you are going to have your glucose levels in check.…"

You can also use the One Touch UltraLink meter with the Medtronics (Minimed) Paradigm Revel pump. I have the Revel 723 and UltraLink meter.

Oops! Just my poor typing. Although, if were talking about the movie Office Space (an IT requisite), then its the TPS (Testing Procedure Specification) report. Then its in reference to mindless, usless paperwork. =^)
