Below are the steps to have the Insulin Pump Therapy Program (IPTP) cover the costs of your or your child’s insulin pump and supplies. The steps may not happen in the exact order shown here. Talk to your diabetes team if you have questions about the IPTP.
If you don’t want to apply for the IPTP (for example, you have your own insurance coverage or you have type 2 diabetes), you can look into insulin pump therapy with your usual diabetes care team. If you don’t have a diabetes team, ask your family doctor to help you get one.
