Hi all, My 9-year-old son was diagnosed this summer with both T1D and Celiac disease. We're handling this hefty life change fairly well, but we'd love to get him on a pump with the goal of achieving better BG control. We did a fundraiser and are saving as much as possible toward a pump and have been in contact with several pump manufacturers. However, I'm curious to know if there are any ways to reduce out-of-pocket expenses, both for the pump itself and also for the monthly supplies. We plan to save enough for a pump and 1 year's worth of supplies before purchasing. Currently, we pay out of pocket for his testing equipment and are blessed to receive his insulin free of charge from the manufacturers. His diabetes clinic gave him a bag full of pen needle samples, so as of yet we've not had to purchase those (but will when supplies run low). Unfortunately, our current health coverage does not extend to pharmacy care, we do not qualify for state assistance, and the new government plans are not affordable for us right now.
