Continuous Sensing, Insurance/Costs

Question from Oakdale, Minnesota, USA:

My young adult daughter is interested in the MiniMed Paradigm REAL-Time System to help with her blood sugars. She uses a pump. How do we go about ordering her this system? Do I need to contact our insurance company first before ordering it?

Answer:

Insulin pump companies have staff who are trained in insurance reimbursement and they can help you determine what level of coverage your insurance provides. You can contact Medtronic Diabetes directly and ask them to help.
