I’ve been using insulin pumps for more than 20 years now. My current pump is a Tandem t:flex, which I chose specifically because of the 480 unit capacity. But it’s now discontinued.
As October looms next week, my t:flex warranty expires and it’s time to get a new pump. Not much to choose from, as far as I can see: Medtronic or Tandem.
So my first question for readers is: are there any other pumps on the market in the U.S. currently?
And my second question is, since both the Medtronic corporate website and my local Medtronic rep have failed to respond to my inquiries, are there any Medtronic Integrated pump/CGM combos that are Medicare approved, and which model do you like?
I like that the DexCom CGM is paid for by Medicare, but I can’t imagine that Medtronic can be far behind.
Thanks for any views or opinions!
