    the cost of insulin pumps

    i have been trying to get my insurance to pay for an insulin pump, but, unfortunately (yet predictably) have been denied. i have gone over the pros and cons of using the pump and, for me, the pros far outweigh the cons. first and foremost because i'm bad about forgetting to take each shot throughout the day. the problem is, with all the information i have found on the pump, i cannot seem to find out just how much one costs and if the insulin is more expensive. i am in a coverage gap as far as my prescription coverage goes and will have to be paying full price for the insulin. i am on a limited income and having many health issues that require medications i cannot afford to pay anymore than i am presently (about $650/month for insulin alone). can anyone tell me how much their pump cost and the average cost of the insulin each month?

    I love my pump and it has made my life a lot better.
    costs they run up to 7,000 with out ins ,there are places you can get a used one. The oens costs me a lot more then the vile of insulin,but you have the insets to get and they are 13.00 every three days at best if your laying out of pocket.If you do get a pump lit me know and I will send you a link to some frends that can help you get the insets at a much lower cost.
    Best wishes

    thanks, harlen. i guess i'll be looking into trying to find a used pump. there is no way i can afford a new one. the cost staggered me!!! right now, i'm taking shots (4 daily). i was on novolog and lantus and it was costing me about $650 a month. which meant i was forced to skip some shots because i could not afford it…i take several other meds, and all together my monthly cash price is more than $1500. the doc decided to see if novolin n and novolin r will work, because it is about $180 a month. a big difference!

This is a very reasonable price for a generic drug used to treat a chronic condition like Type 2 diabetes. â ...
