After talking to a Minimed rep, I have discovered to get started on their pump I will need approximately $1650 which will also include 3 months supplies. I currently have a $750 deductible with Guess I will be waiting a while. Not sure what to think really now. I may get an estimate from Omnipod just to see.
Either way I may be continuing to with multiple shots for some time until I can at least cover my deductible. Maybe in the mean time there will be a cure!
