Over all I love my Omnipod. I do have 1 complaint, the built in BS meter is WAY OFF. I returned 2 of them for this reason, I am on my 3rd and the same thing so I just use a separate meter and put in the BS # myself. When I got the kit I wondered why it comes with separate meter ,it wasn't long before I figured it out. So be very aware of this because as we know our insulin delivery is determined by our BS reading. When in doubt check your BS with another meter.The pump is easy to use and again I do like the pump in spite of this problem. Hope you like it too.

Basic Medicare won't cover the OmniPod but some of the Medicare Advantage and/or supplements may…coverage is definitely a factor for me in deciding whether to switch to OmniPod. The small size, tubelessness and waterproof feature make it attractive. …but you probably don't have to worry about Medicare coverage just yet.
