: I wanted to thank you for the information about the Morphine Pump. I didn't know all the info. especially the cost and the fact that the pump would be replaced about five years when the batteries are low. The Arrow Pump sounds better because I've already had two surgeries and I'm not looking forward to anymore. I have medical insurance with Medicare but it dosen't cover prescriptions and it would be hard to fork off $300 when the pump would be refilled. I have an appointment to see my pain specialist on September 14 and I'll decide then. Thanks again.
Jennifer, the actual billing for the refill on my pump for the drugs is $75, the rest of the billing is
for the dr's services to do the refill and read the telemetry from the pump. Therefore, the cost is not
$300. It also depends on how the dr itemizes the bills
