RE: [IPk] Re: Funding

Dea Ingrid - I spoke to a consultant in Melbourne last year - he said
there were only about 40 pumpers in Australia.

		As an expat Aussie currently living in London, I am
interested in how pump 
		funding works in Oz.  Which health funds cover pumps? I
read a while ago 
		that the major funds were going to remove them from
their funding lists this 
		past February.  Did this happen?

		What are the monthly consumables costs in Oz?

		Are doctors there prescribing them more?  I have been
here almost three 
		years now and I never spoke to a specialist in Oz about
a pump, and only 
		recently spoke to a dr here about them.
