A friend in need of help getting a pump!

A friend of mine emailed me this morning and said that a friend of his was applying for an insulin pump, but in the middle of the process, found out that her insurance had been cancelled. The only thing I could think of was the iPump site, but that's dedicated to helping children in need of insulin pumps, not adults. I have called some of the pump companies, but the amount up front for the pumps are high, and some financial assistance is available, but not a lot.

I am writing this to ask if anyone knows of anywhere she can contact about getting a pump that wouldn't have a high downpayment and reasonable monthly payments and supply prices. I am doing research now, but not havnig much luck.

Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated. I'm trying to get all of my ducks in a row before emailing back.

Thanks, everyone, for your help!!!!!!
