Okay my Endo recommended starting pump therapy at the last visit and i thought long and hard for 2 months about if I was going to tansition or stay on MDI. I have decided to go with the pump. Then comes the next step evaluating and choosing a pump. (What a process.) I eventually landed on the Medtronic MiniMed 530G as recommended by my Endo. I went to my Endo appointment and advised him that I will be beginning the process for getting a pump. He seemed thrilled. He advised me that as soon as I got set up with the pump to call and schedule an appointment with him to go over dosing and all that good stuff. I called my insurance company (BCBSFL) who recommended me to call the DME provider Carecentrix who handles all DME request. BCBSFL will provide the pump at $0 cost share so i am pretty thrilled about that. I called Carecentrix and started the process. They took all of my information and asked for all of my Endo's info to contact him and get started on the paperwork. So i guess the waiting game begins now. Heard it can take anywere from a couple of weeks to a few months. Any input on the waiting time? Carecentrix told me that the longest part would be waiting for my Endo to get them all of the requested records. They said after that they will place a call to Medtronic and have the pump sent out within a few days. Hopefully all goes well and I can get this done pretty quick.
Thanks for any and all input guys.
