I don't know anything about a omnipod. I'm a Medtronic Minimed girl.

Omnipod has a program called "Cut the cord" where you can pay 200.00 and switch to their pump. Then it's just a matter of getting your insurance to cover the pods.

If there is a problem with your Minimed, they will usually replace it overnight. If it's out of warranty, insurance should cover a new one.

I don't have money for an omnipod I work a bunch and am still broke my husband doesn't work I am the only one working and we can barley afford our bills and my pump isn't out of warranty yet but this is my 8th replacement pump and minimed said they are refusing to send me a new one and now my insurance is refusing to cover my supplies and minimed won't send me supplies until I go see a new Endo and get a new script for my supplies and that won't be tell the end of the month and my insurance won't cover a pump for my son because they said they can only cover 1 pump per household

sounds like alot of stress :/ hang in there😯

Omnipod customer service is way better than Medtronic, worth the switch!!
