where people touched by diabetes help each other.

My insurance covered a brand new animas pump with the built in CGM.. BUT they will not cover the supplies.. a 3 month supply would cost roughly 900$ ... any suggestions on how to get cheaper supplies?

have you tried talking directly with animas? I know they offer financial assistance for those that have trouble paying for the pump and the supplies.

the cgm doesnt go through animas.. they are separate distributors. They wont take care credit either

DME is durable medical equipment....I don't know much about it but it's your medical equipment not medication
