Hi Harry..I guess that would depend on your Doctors recomendation, and who your medicare provider is..I have mine through United Health Care..I couldn't find anything listed for insulin pumps..But that dosen't mean anything..I would think your doctor would know or just call medicare..I have called them in the past on questions I have had..And always find these people very helpfull and pleasant to deal with,,Wish I could be of more help
