Omnipod DASH® System Personal Upgrade Programme*
Insulet is delighted to announce that the Personal Upgrade Programme will run from 10th November 2020 until and including 9th November 2021, Omnipod® Insulin Management System users who started on the Omnipod® System before the 1st October 2019 may be able to upgrade to the Omnipod DASH® System by self-paying £298.80 including VAT (£249 excluding VAT)† for the Omnipod DASH® Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM) Kit§ if their Healthcare Professional (HCP) authorises treatment initiation with the Omnipod DASH® System but declines NHS funding of the Omnipod DASH® PDM Kit. The upgrade is conditional on the HCP responsible for the users' diabetes treatment agreeing for the NHS to bear the recurring cost of Omnipod DASH® Pods‡.
