SCHEDULE A REFILL BEFORE YOU GO

Ask your physician about how to plan your refill appointments around your travel. 

VISITING OUT-OF-TOWN DOCTORS

Notify your physician of travel plans well in advance. Discuss how to coordinate pump refills and how a time zone change may affect your dosing schedule.

Keep in mind it can take several weeks to coordinate a refill with a physician in a different location. Insurance coverage, physician consultation, and medication availability must also be coordinated.

PATIENT IDENTIFICATION CARD

Carry your patient ID with you in your wallet or purse. It shows that you have an implanted medical device in case of an emergency, and you will need it when going through security at airports.

If you move, change doctors, or lose your ID card, there are two ways to update your information or request a replacement card.

Complete the online form or call Medtronic Patient Registration Services at 800-551-5544, Monday–Friday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. CT.
