I'm a new OmniPod user - on pod #3 later today. My prescription calls for a pod change every 3 days. With my first 90-day supply, I received 40 pods. Insulet told me that my 90-day supply will be 30 pods from here on out. I would think that 30 pods is the minimum for a 90-day period - not the average number. I'm concerned that this might lead to a situation where I run out of pods, leading to an insurance debacle. In my experience, it is not easy to get an insurance company to make an exception.
I can think of many situations that could cause me to change my pod early, even with the 8-hour padding. And, I would much rather change it at home and limit other changes to emergencies.
Is this something that others have found to be a problem?
I'm thinking I should ask my doctor to change my Rx to specify changing the pod every 2 days, then just delay orders so I don't end up with too many extra pods.
