I was talking to a Tandem rep a while ago and I am interested in their pump. They were offering me a deal where I pay $1400 Cdn up front and get loaned a T slim until my current pump warranty is over. Then I would be required to either return the tandem pump or pay the outstanding $5K or whatever horrid price it is. I contacted the Assistive Devices Program about getting a new pump when my current Medtronic warranty is over and ADP informed me that they would not pay for a new pump until the current one would cost more to repair than replace. They implied that even if the Medtronic pump I have now was out of warranty it would have to cost more to repair it before they would fund a new insulin pump.
Anyone else encounter problems changing pumps when their warranty is over, while dealing with ADP?
I really miss my Animas Vibe.
