Quick question.

I'm heading to my Endo on Thursday for my 1 month pump check-up. I have a quick question for anyone who uses Animas supplies (Insets). I'm coming upon my first reorder towards the end of the month, I want to make sure to do it before our insurance switches to CIGNA in January. So say I wanted to change my cannula and tubing length, do I have to get a new prescription when I go the Dr. on Thursday to do this? Or can I just change what I want on the website ordering thing, and the insurance company will be billed without a glitch? I'm sure I can have my mom call to ask, but I figured I would ask here too.
I've been having a boat load of overnight lows so I have been tweaking my basal rates, we'll see what happens. Expect a pump and doctor update Friday.

Hi Jillian,
Sorry, I'm not going to be any help with the insurance/ordering thing. Just wanted to say Good Luck at your appointment!

nope. you don't need a new script to change tubing length, or canula length. however, since you will be switching insurance soon, i would suggest keeping a prescription handy, in case you have to change suppliers.

Hi Jillian.

I agree with Shaman that the lengths of your tubing and cannulas should not require a new Rx. Whenever I place an order of my own, the rep always asks me if I want to change my tubing length.

It seems to be one of the few doctor/Rx/insurance decisions that can be made without fear of throwing sand into the gears.
