Ours was similar. We were prepared to ask at our 7 month post diagnosis appointment. Before we had a chance, the CDE says, "so, are you ready to pump?". Here's some brochures. Look through them, call the reps if you want then call back and make the pre-pump psychology appointment. Then let Lindsay know what pump you want and we'll take care of contacting the rep and getting the paperwork. It was no fuss from then on. CDE called in our supply order and had it delivered to our house. They let Animas do their training and starts and the 6 week follow so up. They made it very clear up front that they had patients that used all of the pumps and it was entirely up to us. No training class, no saline start, no hassle.
