Does anyone happen to know the time frame before you can get a new pump? Is it two years? #diabetes

I've only ever had Minimed pumps. Theirs are under warranty for 4 years and then you can apply for a new one. My insurance only covers a new one if the warranty is up. I believe 4 years is standard for all the pump companies but I'm not positive

The main US pumps (MiniMed/Medtronic, Animas, and OmniPod) all have 4 year warranties. You'd generally have to wait until 4 years for insurance coverage.

I would call insurance company to verify. if something is wrong with pump they will just replace. but I think warranty is generally 4 yrs.

Usually 4 but call to make sure.

Mine is 2 years. It has more to do with insurance coverage than warranty.
