My Pump: Tandem t:slim



Hi, I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of some mail order pharmacies that handle pump supplies and insulin. I used Express Scripts for years, but my insurance changed and after a HUGE hassle with them and my new pump I am no longer using them. Now the problem I'm having is finding a place that will handle both pump supplies and insulin. I'm trying to keep things simple and not have to use multiple pharmacies.

I am currently using a t:slim pump, so I need their reservoirs, but I am using the minimed infusion sets.

Thanks for any suggestions!

My Pump: MM 530g with CGMS



You really need to check with your insurance. Most insurance companies have a limited number of providers that they work with.

Also, for many of us, insulin is provided under the prescription coverage while pump supplies are covered under Durable Medical Equipment. I get my supplies directly from MM and my insulin at the local Walgreens.
