The Nova Scotia Insulin Pump Program office will be closed between Monday, Dec. 8 and Thursday, Jan. 8.
It will re-open at 8 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 9.
Applications will continue to be accepted, and will be stamped with the received date throughout this time, but they will not be reviewed until the office reopens. Please note that these closure dates will not affect your renewal and effective date eligibility.
We know that Nova Scotians with diabetes want access to the treatment options that work for them. But insulin pumps and pump supplies can be expensive. That’s why the NSIPP was created.
Our program helps Nova Scotians who are less than 19 years of age with the cost of insulin pumps and pump supplies. We also help young adults who are less than 25 years of age with the cost of pump supplies.
The program is based on family income, and family size. Families with lower incomes will receive the most help through our program. This is to ensure we can help the people who can least afford to pay.
Like our Family Pharmacare program, there is an annual copayment. To find out if you may be eligible for funding and to calculate your estimated copayment, check out our financial eligibility calculator.
Insulin pumps aren't for everyone. They can cause serious health risks if they're not used properly. To find out if you are ready for an insulin pump, read Are You Ready To Be A Pumper questionnaire.
If you are an approved vendor and are interested in adding a new insulin pump or an upgrade to an existing pump to our approved list, please contact Mona Fouda, NSIPP Coordinator, at (902) 470-6707 or email@example.com.
