Simplified insulin delivery deserves simplified access.
Omnipod® systems are available through the pharmacy. And while all of our systems require a prescription, they are covered under private insurance companies, Medicare, select State Medicaid and Managed Medicaid Programs. When you submit your health insurance information, we’ll contact your insurance provider(s) to determine your benefits. We will then contact you to review your benefits before getting started. For more information, call 1-800-591-3455.
Omnipod DASH® users pay on average less than $50/mo. co-pay through the pharmacy.
The only tubeless, full-feature insulin pumps available through the pharmacy
The pharmacy channel makes it convenient to pick up your Pods where you’d normally pick up your insulin. Omnipod® products are available nationwide through retail and mail-order suppliers. Click here for a list of available pharmacies.
Benefits of the pharmacy channel include:
Convenience of picking up your Pods and insulin supplies in one place
Alleviates high start-up costs by providing the Omnipod 5 Controller or DASH Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM) at no charge with your first prescription*
Simplifying payments with a monthly, commitment-free, pay-as-you-go cost structure†
To receive Omnipod through your pharmacy benefit, your health care provider will need to submit a prescription, which allows you to receive your Pods just like you receive your insulin.

Covered by Medicare? So are we
Omnipod is covered under Medicare Part D. But unlike pharmaceutical products, Omnipod does not appear on Medicare’s plan finder site since it is a medical device. Still, there are access options for some Part D plans under a Tier 3 and Tier 4 co-pay benefit.
