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.

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.
