Congratulations, Linny! That is wonderful news. I wish I had some words of wisdom for obtaining an OmniPod, as I love mine. I use both the Dexcom and Omnipod and can't imagine life without them. As a few mentioned, it is a lot of work to gain control, but you did it, the tools give us the opportunity to fine-tune that control, without as much worry of going low.
The only observation I can make in regards to insurance coverage of OmniPods is that I often hear (through the DOC) how it is "disposable" and they (insurance companies) don't cover such things. Well, the PDM (Personal Diabetes Manager) is not disposable, its what operates the pod, only wirelessly and the pods I liken to the infusion sets for tubed systems, where they have an attached (tubed) PDM (for the lack of knowing the correct vernacular for the tubed systems.)
Best of luck to you!
