I have a question for all you pumpers....

Im a type 1 and am on insulin shots. I used to have a pump but my dr took me off of it around 6 yrs ago. Ive seriously been considering going back on one to help get tighter control. The only problem is Im currently without insurance. :( I spoke with a lady over the phone from the One Touch Ping company who told me that if I could qualify for medicaid, then the pump and all of my supplies would be covered. So my question is do any of you out there have a pump that is covered by medicaid? I want to know if this is a real option or not....because if not there will be no way I can be put back on a pump.... :(

I appreciate any input.....

Welcome Danielle!! You have joined one of the well known Diabetes websites...and also a very caring one. I like you believe that the pump does give us better management of our disease, it has a more precise basal. My suggestion would be to check the health department in your state and find out how to get on Medicaid and would it be help you to get a pump...I wish you well.
