Before updating the device’s software, ensure the patient has accessed the link below to verify which devices are supported: 
Security & Privacy:
HIPAA compliant when the pump communicates with other devices in the system, such as the BG meter, transmitter, or compatible mobile device, the data is encrypted.

Cost & Payment:
The CareLink™ Connect app is available for download via the App Store® and Google Play™ store at no cost to the user. The care partner can download and use the CareLink™ Connect app on their own once the MiniMed™ Mobile user has given permission and approved the linking process. The app does not require a prescription or license.
