Re: [IP] Great-West Life



Hi Wendy,

I am covered under Great West Life here in Winnipeg. I fought with them for
months to cover my pump, but no such luck.  However, they do cover 80% of
all my pump supplies (incl. batteries) and insulin, up until we reach our
pharmacare deductible. Now since we have passed that, all my supplies are
covered 100% by the gov't. This was the same when I was in Saskatchewan.

Good luck.
