      You've seen the omnipod deal, right? I forget the specifics , but you pay for the PDM and first pods and then get money off the next pods until you're basically paying $200 for the system. If your insurance doesn't care which pump supplies you use, you could look into that as a backup until you can save the six grand.

      Honestly, I've gone through so darned much medical billing (I'm sure you have too!) that it's become really obvious to me that the rates you pay can be very, very variable. If you are willing to go outside of insurance (just becuase you have insurance doesn't mean, I think, you are required to use it -- but you can't get "credited" on your deductible for anything more than you've paid, so you have to go outside insurance altogether) Animas may be able to sell you one for less. Maybe not, but it's worth a call if it matters to you.

      We're on a high deductible plan for some family members, in the long run it works out better but in the short run, ouch. . .

      Would you and/or Erik and Ryan be interested in hanging out with me on some Sunday? I have a 6 year old brother I can bring along if that would make things less awkward.

      Hey Colleen... I saw your post about LabCorp. We have had issues with them as well. My mom went in, and they didn't even verify her name or anything, and drew her blood under my name.... MAJOR issues.... my mom I believe actually got that phleb. fired, or at least hopefully since that kind of mistake could prove potentially deadly.... Anywho.... steer clear of them if at all possible... my experiences with them as well have all been negative.

      West Rogers Park. In the past I have taken the 290 Touhy bus to the Park Ridge Library for special events- I can catch that bus just a mile from my house. I would be willing to go out to Park Ridge on the 290 bus to meet you guys sometime this summer if you want.

      Hey Colleen, I live in that part of Chicago that is pretty close to Park Ridge.
