IInsurance question

I am going to switch jobs soon and I was wondering, how the insurance things work... Currently my son is using OmniPod but we are thinking of trying Animas. I was told by my current insurance, that they will pay for a switch. What happens when I change a job soon. Will my new insurance pay for the new pump again? If I want to go back to OmniPod will I ever be able to?See More

"I don't really know how soon you can reuse a site. We try really hard to alternate between 6 general sites but even within those we try not to reuse the same area at least the next time we use that site."

Faina replied to Faina's discussion 'Pods not working' in the group OmniPod Users
"We are running out of sites so we are reusing the same sites a lot. This very well could be a reason. Any idea on how long it should be before using the same spot?"

"Never disregard the possibility that you could have a poor load of insulin. I notice towards the bottem of a bottle it sometimes loses effectiveness."
