    Just got a call from Animas, medicaid will cover the pump and supplies. Yes!!:D They're shipping it today and we're supposed to get it on Monday the 15th.

    Here's my question: The person i was speaking to said that our care provider requires that we set up the pump class training appointment. However after hanging up, I read this on our pump papers

    The Trainer will schedule the training at _________children's hospital.

    I guess if no trainer contacts me within a week of getting the pump I'll contact animas and see what's going on.

    I would think your endo office or trainer would call you to set up the appointment.

    Congrats!

    It sounds like your endo's office wants you to train through them and not through animas. Sometimes it can take a while for pump classes, so I'd call the endo's office and ask how the training will be done and with whom.

    We had to call to schedule training at Children's hospital once we had the pump in hand. We did no training through Animas.

    That is great! There was some confusion on who would set us up also...it was the trainer in the end who set it all up.

    Ditto here, and it took us a full 5 weeks to get in, so the pump sat in its box on a shelf looking at us . . . :cool:.

    I'd call now to set up a pump start/training date ;).

    We're 2 days in and loving it btw!
