Re: [IP] Any Canadians or Maritimers
My wife Patricia is a type 1 diabetic and on minimed pump 507c since about
6 months, supplies are expensive and we order from Kennebacasis Drugs in
Rothesay. N.B. to the tune of 402 dollars for 24 sof-set Q.R. at 13.75
each and 24 syringe reservoir 3 at 3 each for the foregoing total of 402
dollars.(aprox 2 1/2 month supply). We are fortunate to have duel
insurance so the supplies are covered 100%.
Our 507c pump costs 3500 U/S dollars and our insurance picked up 80% of
the cost and we paid the additional 20%. Our second insurance denied
coverage on the pump.
Pat uses humalog cartridges at a cost here of 35 dollars per 10ml, again
we are fortunate enough to have coverage on insulin also .
Stacey, how do these prices above compare to what you are paying and do
you shop at the same Drug outlet in Rothesay, N.B.
We are living in Newfoundland, I am originally from NS and my wife Pat
from Ontario so guess we qualify as maritimers..
