The Omnipod Welcome Program includes a no cost trial of the Omnipod System, a free box of Pods (10 count), and the opportunity to receive a $200 gift card for completing a Dexcom patient survey to upgrade to the Dexcom G5 CGM.2 Animas pump switchers who have recently taken advantage of the existing Omnipod Welcome Program may still take advantage of this Dexcom offer as long as they are not an already-existing customer of Dexcom.
“We created this program to provide a way for Animas users to experience the freedom of the Omnipod System with the peace of mind of Dexcom’s market-leading CGM,” said Bret Christensen, Chief Commercial Officer of Insulet. “Managing diabetes is a very personal decision and we strongly support an individual’s right to choice when it comes to their diabetes management. This partnership is just one example of our commitment to support people with diabetes today and over the long term.”
"Dexcom is excited to partner with Insulet to offer this special promotion,” said Rick Doubleday, Chief Commercial Officer of Dexcom. "This provides Animas users the opportunity to upgrade to our best-selling Dexcom G5 Mobile CGM and have easier access to the only tubeless pump system in the U.S.”
As the number one pediatric preferred pump3, which is also quickly gaining adoption with adults, the Omnipod System uses a tubeless, waterproof patch-pump technology that offers users significant quality of life benefits. The differentiated design provides up to 72 hours of nonstop, discreet insulin delivery, and more choice for site selection. It eliminates the burden associated with multiple daily injections and the complexity associated with traditional tubed pumps. When used with the Dexcom G5 Mobile CGM, users will benefit from fewer finger sticks, fewer components to carry and wear, and access to pump and blood glucose data from their smart-phone with Insulet provided Glooko.
