For anybody on the [original] Tandem t:slim or the Tandem t:slim G4 and thinking about upgrading outside of the typical insurance 4 year plan, Tandem has an upgrade program in place currently however it will be closing down soon. This would be the time to decide if this is the best path for you.
“The Upgrade Program is available to eligible customers through September 30, 2017.”
I have heard some people being hesitant to get or continue with the Tandem pump due to concerns over the company’s finances. Tandem just released their Second Quarter 2017 Results and they did beat their forecast by 4 cents per share and shipped almost 3500 pumps during the second quarter. So it does appear they are hanging in and continuing to improve.
More competition in the pump market can only be helpful for all the pump users.
The last thing anybody needs is a single manufacturer left with zero consumer choice available.
