Customers who choose not to transition to a Medtronic pump and continue to use their Animas® pump should be aware that effective September 30, 2019, Medtronic will no longer be able to supply Animas® cartridges or customer support for Animas® pumps, so you may want to consider alternative therapy options.
For information on the Animas® warranty policy visit www.animas.com
Whether you’re an Animas® Vibe® or Animas® Ping® customer, rest assured you can still order your infusion sets, cartridges, and other supplies directly through the Medtronic Store.
Animas® decided to close their insulin pump business in the U.S. and Canada in October 2017. Animas® selected Medtronic as the partner of choice to provide customer support to Animas® customers while they transition to new pump options through September 30th, 2019.
Our first priority is to ensure there is no therapy disruption for Animas® customers given the significant benefits insulin pump therapy provides. As such, Medtronic has stepped up to provide support to Animas® customers by offering supplies and support along with offering pump transition programs inclusive of low to no cost options for eligible customers.
Medtronic was selected because of our rich 30-year history of innovation and service. Medtronic has supported over 1.2 million people living with diabetes around the world. Medtronic customers have access to 24-hour technical product support, supply reorder services, and dedicated global customer support. Our unparalleled service is the #1 reason that people with diabetes stay with Medtronic.
Medtronic has taken over the support function for Animas® patients. Supply ordering and support has been transitioned to Medtronic as of January 2018. You can continue to use the same phone numbers to contact customer support for your Animas® pump, 877.937.7867.
This only affects Animas® Vibe® and OneTouch Ping® insulin pumps and related supplies. There is no impact on OneTouch blood glucose meters and related supplies, which you can continue to purchase from your existing supplier.
If you are out of warranty, Animas® will no longer provide service or a replacement for your insulin pump. This means you are at risk of going off therapy and back to multiple daily injections should anything happen to your Animas® pump.
We would like to offer you an alternative option today to replace your Out-of-Warranty Animas® pump and ensure you do not experience a disruption in therapy.
To learn about pump transition programs available through Medtronic, call 855.322.9568.
In-warranty Animas® patients have the option to receive a new MiniMedTM system for the remainder of their Animas® pump warranty period. Animas® has arranged for this transition option to occur at no cost to the patient to ensure continuity of therapy.
Medtronic is now accepting enrollment for this program. The program is only offered for a limited time, and you must have more than 60 days left on your warranty to qualify. To learn more about the program or to enroll, call 855.322.9568 and select option 2.
Customers who choose not to transition to a Medtronic insulin pump under this program can continue to use their Animas insulin pump; however, after September 30, 2019, Medtronic will not be able to supply Animas® supplies and customer support will no longer be provided for Animas pumps by Medtronic.

Important Safety Information: MiniMed™ 630G System with SmartGuard™ technology
Indicated for the continuous delivery of insulin, at set and variable rates, for the management of diabetes mellitus. MiniMed™ 630G system is approved for ages 14 years or older with Guardian™ Sensor 3 and MiniMed™ 630G system is approved for ages 16 years or older with Enlite™ sensor. Both systems require a prescription. Insulin infusion pumps and associated components of insulin infusion systems are limited to sale by or on the order of a physician and should only be used under the direction of a healthcare professional familiar with the risks of insulin pump therapy. Pump therapy is not recommended for people who are unwilling or unable to perform a minimum of four blood glucose tests per day. Pump therapy is not recommended for people who are unwilling or unable to maintain contact with their healthcare professional. Pump therapy is not recommended for people whose vision or hearing does not allow recognition of pump signals and alarms. Insulin pumps use rapid-acting insulin. If your insulin delivery is interrupted for any reason, you must be prepared to replace the missed insulin immediately. Replace the infusion set every 48–72 hours, or more frequently per your healthcare professional’s instructions. Insertion of a glucose sensor may cause bleeding or irritation at the insertion site. Consult a physician immediately if you experience significant pain or if you suspect that the site is infected. The information provided by CGM systems is intended to supplement, not replace, blood glucose information obtained using a blood glucose meter. A confirmatory fingerstick using a CONTOUR®NEXT LINK 2.4 meter is required prior to making adjustments to diabetes therapy. Always check the pump display when using a CONTOUR®NEXT LINK 2.4 meter, to ensure the glucose result shown agrees with the glucose results shown on the meter. Do not calibrate your CGM device or calculate a bolus using a result taken from an Alternative Site (palm) or a result from a control solution test. 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. 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. The MiniMed™ 630G or MiniMed™ 530G system are not intended to be used directly for preventing or treating hypoglycemia but to suspend insulin delivery when the user is unable to respond to the Suspend on low alarm and take measures to prevent or treat hypoglycemia themselves. Therapy to prevent or treat hypoglycemia should be administered according to the recommendations of the user’s healthcare provider.
WARNING: The SmartGuard™ Suspend on low feature will cause the pump to temporarily suspend insulin delivery for two hours when the sensor glucose reaches a set threshold. Under some conditions of use the pump can suspend again, resulting in very limited insulin delivery. Prolonged suspension can increase the risk of serious hyperglycemia, ketosis, and ketoacidosis. Before using the SmartGuard feature, it is important to read the SmartGuard™ feature information in the User Guide and discuss proper use of the feature with your healthcare provider.

Important Safety Information: 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.
