Re: [IP] Re: Switching Insurance companies

Hi I am with Liberty eath in Canada the term they use "diabetic supplies" is
very gereral I have the same clause in my Liberty Health plan but they do
not consider an insulin Pump "diabetic supplies" they further broke that
down to mean only pump supplies were covered noth the actual pump.  But
indivdual plans may vary with a wide range of coverage options beest to chek
with the company direct.
