I have already had two Medicare/supplemental insurance-funded Animas Ping pumps. They also pay for insulin and supplies under Plan B for durable medical equipment. All I am trying to do is replace what I had.
Service has been curtailed by Medtronics as of Nov. 12. Now they will replace any malfunctioning Animas pump with a Medtronics 630g or 670g instead of another Animas (a complete change from their original agreement with Animas). Anyway, I don’t want a Medtronics pump. I want a t-slim x2 with a G6 DEXCOM and should be able to obtain one since Animas, my Ping manufacturer, has gone out of business in the U.S. If Medicare now backs Medtronic’s hyjacking of Animas customers, I will not go down quietly!
I know nothing about Advantage plans and don’t have one.
