I have just finished 5 years with Animas One Touch Ping, it worked but due to my eyes, it became harder and harder to read. I receive my pump thru Medicare and my Supplemental F Insurance.
I talked to Animas and they said the could send me one of the new Vibes, it would come without the Dexcom materials tho since Medicare didn't support CGM.
I checked it out, and could read the Vibe easily, so I said, yes, great, let's do it.
About 1 week later, my distributor "CCS" called and said they had an order to send me one of the Animas Vibes, sent to them by Animas. They however could not do that, since it had CGM associated with it, I was not eligible thru Medicare, they could however send me another Ping.
The offered me 3 choices, Animas, Medtronic, and another one, but I said I would think about it.
I then checked out the information on the T:slim, and it was also easy to read, and my endo supported it. So I am in the process of ordering the T:slim.
(I had considered, had I received the Vibe, of purchasing some of the dexcom sensors from them out of pocket for those times when my BG swings wildly and no amount of insulin will reduce it, but that was not to be)
