Government of New Brunswick

The New Brunswick Pediatric Insulin Pump Program (PIPP) supports New Brunswick children living with diabetes whom are medically eligible for insulin pump therapy. The program seeks to assist families to obtain fair and affordable access to a range of insulin pump devices and the basic operating supplies.  The family is responsible for a portion of the equipment and supplies based on family income.  The calculation for the family contribution considers family income, family size and the selected device. 

New Brunswick children under the age of 19, who wish to use insulin pump therapy, must meet the medical criteria and complete a PIPP Approval Authority Form together with their pediatrician.  Only devices included in the Approved Vendor List are eligible for support.  The parent(s) complete and mail the Family Contribution Assessment section and the supporting documentation to the PIPP Coordinator.  This will be used to determine the family financial contribution.

Once accepted, the family will receive their insulin pump device and supplies directly for the device vendor. Families will pay their family contribution for the pump device and supplies directly to the vendor.  Remaining costs are then billed to the province by the Vendor.
