As a Canadian and a pumper the health system pays nothing toward the
pump or pump supplies. It took a long time in my province, Saskatchewan,
to get Humalog on the drug plan. The only after the price dropped from
$38 to $23/ vial. One needs to carry private insurance if pumps and
supplies are to be paid for by anyone other than yourself.
