An update on the fight for the insulin pump

I just got off the phone with Bobby, my representive from Animas. Even though they have not received my paperwork, it looks like I will be getting the pump. Income has to be under 30,000 a year. Well my income is at 9744. So hopefully soon I will be a pumper. YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Congrats Cody. Looking forward to getting on mine in the near future as well. So why did you choose Animas (or did you have a choice?)

Do they help with the cost for low income people? Cost is one of the big things that keeps me from considering pumping.

I chose Animas as I like the options they had on the pump and they have a financial assistance program for those that got turned down my insurance or do not have insurance. I am getting a refurbished ir 1250 for $3200 and they said I will also probably be getting a 30% discount on the supplies for it. They also will do payment arrangments for you to pay for the pump.
