I'm getting frustrated with tubing. Does anyone have any experience with the new smaller Omnipod?

I'm especially interested in reliability.

I just found out that the Omnipod is not covered by Medicare, which I will be forced onto in 4 months because this is not a free country whereby you have a choice of insurance after age 65.

My current insurance covers the Omnipod. But, my current insurance becomes secondary once I'm forced onto Medicare and won't cover anything Medicare doesn't cover. They will only pickup the remainder of medicare costs.

I know I'm going to really hate being on Medicare.
