I heard back from both Tandem (Tslim Pump) and Animas (Ping Pump), and they are requiring a c-peptide and fasting blood glucose. I do have a meeting with the Animas rep on Friday, for the demo.
I am feeling a bit discouraged, I am a type 2 (as far as I know) and heard that many times (especially with Medicare replacement policies) T2's are not covered for the pump.
I am angry that insurance companies can have so much control over something that a doctor deems a good idea.
The one thing, thus far, going for me is that I am on the vGo. The vGo is like a disposable insulin pump that you change every 24 hours, but you only get 60 units pre-filled in it (and take 'clicks' depending on what you eat.)
It is limiting, which is why my doctor felt an actual pump was a good idea.
