Sometimes it’s nice to hear from someone who gets it. Here is what members of the Medtronic family are saying about how they #LiveMoreWorryLess while wearing the MiniMed™ 670G system.
When you buy the MiniMed™ 670G system today, you’ll automatically be entered into the Next Tech Pathway program which will help you access our next technology when it's released. The last day to place an order and be enrolled in the program is April 1, 2020.
When it comes to your diabetes management, cost should not prevent you from accessing advanced diabetes technology. Our team will work with you to help ensure that you can experience the benefits of insulin pump therapy.
Most private insurance companies cover insulin pumps under the durable medical equipment portion of your policy. Depending on your insurance coverage, you might have to pay a deductible and/or percent of the cost (co-insurance). If your deductible and out-of-pocket maximum has been met, the insulin pump might be covered at 100% by your insurance.
Government insurances such as Medicare and Medicaid may cover insulin pumps depending on the state and requirements. A patient's out-of-pocket cost under government insurance varies depending on the policy.
If you do not have insurance or need assistance with your out-of-pocket cost, Medtronic offers flexible payment options and a financial assistance program for qualifying customers.
When you start the process of getting an insulin pump, you do not have to worry about the paperwork. Medtronic will help you every step of the way by verifying your insurance, providing an estimated out-of-pocket cost, collecting the documents from you and your physician, and submitting all the required documents to your insurance company.
Flexible Monthly Payment Program
Pay around $49‡/month depending on insurance coverage. For a simple monthly payment, the Flex program offers a package which includes the MiniMed™ 670G pump, the enhanced Guardian™ Link 3 transmitter and a 3-month supply of Guardian™ Sensor 3, infusion sets and reservoirs.
With the many tasks diabetes involves, one thing we don't want you to worry about is finances. We have an innovative Financial Assistance Program to provide support for customers living in the United States who:

The MiniMed™ 670G system is approved for people with type 1 diabetes age 7 and above.
To learn more about insulin pump therapy for children please click here. If you would prefer not to wear a CGM, the MiniMed™ 630G system may be a better fit for you. If you would like a CGM and not an insulin pump, consider looking into the Guardian™ Connect CGM.
At this time Medicare does not cover the CGM portion of the MiniMed™ 670G system. However for those who meet certain criteria and would be interested in using CGM in the future, there may be options to allow you to purchase the MiniMed™ 670G pump with your insurance today.
In the meantime, Medtronic is actively working with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to establish coverage for Medtronic CGM.
When you use an insulin pump, you have a dramatic reduction in injections – by up to 90%*. The infusion set that attaches to your body contains a small, flexible plastic cannula that is inserted to be placed under the skin and changed every 2-3 days. A CGM glucose sensor is inserted every 7 days.
Using the system does not completely replace fingersticks but you will likely check your BG less frequently. Since sensor readings are taken from your interstitial fluid (fluid surrounding the cells in your tissue) and not your blood, you still need to test using a BG meter. This is required to calibrate the sensor 3-4 times a day to make sure the glucose sensor maintains accuracy over time and always when making a treatment decision. For more on how CGM works, watch this video.
*Assumes four injections per day for 30 days and one infusion set change every two to three days.
Wearing a pump and sensor can be very discreet. You can place the pump underneath your clothes or on the outside of your clothes, clipped to your waistband or worn in a pouch on your waist or thigh. To reflect your personal style or meet functional needs of your lifestyle, we offer many accessory options.
At the time of manufacture and when the reservoir and tubing are properly inserted, your MiniMed™ 670G pump is waterproof to a depth of up to 12 feet (3.6 meters) for up to 24 hours. This is classified as IPX8 rating.†
Although it’s designed to be waterproof, drops and bumps that occur over time can make it more vulnerable to damage from water. We recommend removing your pump before swimming or bathing.
1. Get started by calling us at 888-350-5440 or filling out this form with your contact information so we can have someone follow up with you. We will help answer any questions, discuss out-of-pocket costs, and the process to submit this purchase through an insurance company.
2. Once the system is purchased and shipped, we will work with you to schedule your training. We have a robust clinical support team who will help conduct an in-person training. (With the use of CGM and SmartGuard™ Auto Mode, you may need a few training sessions.)
3. Once you’re trained, we will continue to support you throughout your journey with us. We will provide ongoing educational resources and also offer a dedicated Technical Support team who is available 24/7.

Important Safety Information: MiniMed™ 670G System
MINIMED™ 670G SYSTEM
The Medtronic MiniMed™ 670G system is intended for continuous delivery of basal insulin (at user selectable rates) and administration of insulin boluses (in user selectable amounts) for the management of type 1 diabetes mellitus in persons, seven years of age and older, requiring insulin as well as for the continuous monitoring and trending of glucose levels in the fluid under the skin. The MiniMed™ 670G system includes SmartGuard™ technology, which can be programmed to automatically adjust delivery of basal insulin based on Continuous Glucose Monitor sensor glucose values and can suspend delivery of insulin when the sensor glucose value falls below or is predicted to fall below predefined threshold values. The system requires a prescription. The Guardian™ Sensor (3) glucose values are not intended to be used directly for making therapy adjustments, but rather to provide an indication of when a fingerstick may be required. A confirmatory finger stick test via the CONTOUR®NEXT LINK 2.4 blood glucose meter is required prior to making adjustments to diabetes therapy. All therapy adjustments should be based on measurements obtained using the CONTOUR®NEXT LINK 2.4 blood glucose meter and not on values provided by the Guardian™ Sensor (3). Always check the pump display to ensure the glucose result shown agrees with the glucose results shown on the CONTOUR®NEXT LINK 2.4 blood glucose meter. Do not calibrate your CGM device or calculate a bolus using a blood glucose meter result taken from an Alternative Site (palm) or from a control solution test. It is not recommended to calibrate your CGM device when sensor or blood glucose values are changing rapidly, e.g., following a meal or physical exercise. If a control solution test is out of range, please note that the result may be transmitted to your pump when in the “Always” send mode.
WARNING: Medtronic performed an evaluation of the MiniMed™ 670G system and determined that it may not be safe for use in children under the age of 7 because of the way that the system is designed and the daily insulin requirements. Therefore this device should not be used in anyone under the age of 7 years old. This device should also not be used in patients who require less than a total daily insulin dose of 8 units per day because the device requires a minimum of 8 units per day to operate safely.
Pump therapy is not recommended for people whose vision or hearing does not allow recognition of pump signals and alarms. Pump therapy is not recommended for people who are unwilling or unable to maintain contact with their healthcare professional. The safety of the MiniMed™ 670G system has not been studied in pregnant women. For complete details of the system, including product and important safety information such as indications, contraindications, warnings and precautions associated with system and its components, please consult http://www.medtronicdiabetes.com/important-safety-information#minimed-670g and the appropriate user guide at http://www.medtronicdiabetes.com/download-library
