If you require the replacement of external parts of your system, please contact Abbott (formerly St. Jude Medical) Technical Services at 1-800-727-7846 (Option 3) to see if your equipment is covered under warranty.
If your equipment is not covered by warranty, the Technical Services staff will give you the option of having Continuum Services facilitate your equipment replacement. Non-warranty replacement equipment requires a signed prescription. Continuum Services will work with the patient, the authorized prescriber, and the insurance company to get the prescription and arrange for insurance billing. For more information, visit Continuum Services or call 877-217-1485. Email inquiries may also be sent to NMD@abbott.com.
