The Future For Insulin Pumps

Guest Post by David Kliff, Diabetic Investor Newsletter. This morning I learned of yet another closed-loop insulin delivery system, i.e. artificial pancreas, under development. Per a post on the Drug Delivery web site: Cellnovo and Diabeloop said this week they are launching a CE Mark cross-over registration study for an artificial pancreas device Diabeloop is developing which uses Cellnovo’s insulin pump. Now keep in mind that Medtronic is currently launching the 670G, the artificial pancreas that really isn’t an artificial pancreas. Animas, Insulet, and Tandem all have closed-loop projects under way and the premise behind Bigfoot is a closed-loop system. Is it possible that this way-cool whiz-bang device could end up like every other whiz-bang way-cool diabetes device and become a commodity? Yep! Is it possible that when it becomes a commodity there will be a price war? Yep! Do we really need 5 or 6 of these suckers? Nope. Will that stop anyone from trying? Nope. The reality is we are still trying to figure out how anyone is going to make money in this market. Just looking at the 670G from Medtronic and all the additional expense this system demands, it does make one wonder. Continue reading >>

    I found free Insulin and Medtronic Pump Supplies from Manufacturers

    Hi, just wanted to give those of you who are in need of supplies and their money is stretch due to Unemployment or Inability to work from Diabetes. Lilly, the maker of insulin gives free insulin and also if you are on an insulin pump (Medtronic is the one I am on) they also give you reservoirs and infusion sets. You will need to meet certain financial guidelines. When I was "laid off" and found a part time job I got better control only working 3 days a week instead of 5(which of course affected my income). However, I needed help with my insulin pump supplies and insulin. I couldn't afford Cobra Ins. from my prior job @ 600 a month so the only one I could get was a cheaper Blue Shield plan which had a pre-existing condition clause which meant they paid 0 of my diabetes supplies and doctor bills. If you need help finding the website for Lilly or Medtronic for you pumpers just let me know.

http://diaberex.com/ Insulin Pump Therapy - Does Insulin Pump Therapy Work? What is insulin pump therapy? Through the following simple questions and related answers, you can get an understanding of what an insulin pump is and how insulin pump therapy works, helping you keep your glucose levels under control whilst maintaining your lifestyle. What is a pump and how does it work? An insulin pump is a small electronic device, about the size of a mobile phone. It can be easily carried on a belt, inside a pocket, or even attached to a bra thus becoming virtually invisible to others and allowing a very discreet therapy. The pump can help you more closely mimic the way a healthy pancreas functions. The pump, through a Continuous Subcutaneous Insulin Infusion (CSII), replaces the need for frequent injections by delivering precise doses of rapid-acting insulin 24 hours a day to closely match your body's needs.

Insulin Pump Therapy

Insulin pump therapy can give you the better control you want for your lifestyle.1, 2 Technology for Joy & Jake What Is Insulin Pump Therapy? An insulin pump is a small device about the size of a small cell phone that is worn externally and can be discreetly clipped to your belt, slipped into a pocket, or hidden under your clothes. It delivers precise doses of rapid-acting insulin to closely match your body’s needs: Basal Rate: Small amounts of insulin delivered continuously (24/7) for normal functions of the body (not including food). The programmed rate is determined by your healthcare professional. Bolus Dose: Additional insulin you can deliver “on demand” to match the food you are going to eat or to correct a high blood sugar. Insulin pumps have bolus calculators that help you calculate your bolus amount based on settings that are determined by your healthcare professional. Buttons to program your insulin LCD screen to show what you are programming Battery compartment to hold 1 AAA alkaline battery Reservoir compartment that holds insulin A plastic cartridge that holds the insulin that is locked into the insulin pump. It comes with a transfer guard (blue piece at the top Continue reading >>

Is My Test, Item, Or Service Covered?

How often is it covered? Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) doesn’t cover insulin (unless use of an insulin pump is medically necessary), insulin pens, syringes, needles, alcohol swabs, or gauze. Medicare prescription drug coverage (Part D) may cover insulin and certain medical supplies used to inject insulin, like syringes, gauze, and alcohol swabs. If you use an external insulin pump, insulin and the pump may be covered as durable medical equipment (DME). However, suppliers of insulin pumps may not necessarily provide insulin. For more information, see durable medical equipment. Your costs in Original Medicare You pay 100% for insulin (unless used with an insulin pump, then you pay 20% of the Medicare-approved amount, and the Part B deductible applies). You pay 100% for syringes and needles, unless you have Part D. To find out how much your specific test, item, or service will cost, talk to your doctor or other health care provider. The specific amount you’ll owe may depend on several things, like: Other insurance you may have How much your doctor charges Whether your doctor accepts assignment The type of facility The location where you get your test, item, or service Continue reading >>

    Insulin Pump Cost and ongoing expenses?

    My endo has been recommending I go on an insulin pump and I told him I would consider in the near future once I find better control first thru MDI. I started researching the different pump options and I am a shocked on the cost of a pump and ongoing expense of infusion sets. I realize everyone has different insurance coverage to offset these expenses, but it appears a lot more than I anticipated. I have BCBS Gold PPO plan that appears will require I first meet my deductible and then pay 20% for in network supplied pump. I am finding pumps range from $6,000-12,000. It also appears that the infusion sets will run another $120-170/month. Not sure what portion of infusion sets will be covered? My insurance co-pays on test strips and pen needles make coverage non-existent. It is much cheaper for me to use Relion meter and test strips purchased solely at my expense then it is to buy branded meter & test strips. Same thing with needles, cheaper online then what my co-pay is. Do most of you shop out infusion sets online and pay for this completely out of pocket or does insurance pick up big portion of this? I also seem a lot of the pumps work with specific meters which would also add to monthly expense.

    Can you move to Canada and become a resident for health care purposes ? Bring a warm parka. Yes capital and operating costs are staggering. Will be pumping soon instead of MDI. Read my post re lantus, this is why MDI not that practical for me lantus is useless or harmful in my case.

  3. PeterPumper

    I can only speak of my experience, but it may be typical.
    Yes, the initial pump was covered as a "durable medical device", and subject to deductible and then copay. But the year I first went on the pump I had already met my deductible. In fact, I'd also met my annual out-of-pocket max, so the pump cost me Zero.
    My insurer (and most) also cover infusion sets and reservoirs as DME rather than prescriptions (even though scripts are required), so again, annual deductibles, co-pays (in my case 20%), and annual out-of-pocket maxes apply.
    Does using a pump cost more than needles and vials? Yes. But I make an effort to make the most of the insurance plans and such.
    I've never sourced the infusion sets anywhere other than the manufacturer site, and I don't think there's the same 3rd party market for them as there is for test strips, since they are script-only DME.
    As far as meters, you can use any meter. Using one that "links" to your pump offers convenience, but is not mandatory. But also keep in mind that once you buy the pump and supplies, you've surely met your annual deductible, and in some cases your out-of-pocket max, and that sometimes means getting test strips through insurance ends up cheaper if not free.
