Receiving a Medtronic loan pump

Successful applicants will have access to a Medtronic insulin pump* for the remainder of their health fund waiting period (a maximum of 12 months).

Medtronic Diabetes will confirm an applicant’s details upon receipt of the completed form. Loan pumps will only be delivered to diabetes education centres or hospitals and patients will need to make contact with the respective centre to arrange an appointment for training on a loan pump. Upon completion of the health fund waiting period, the individual will be required to return the loan pump to Medtronic.
