The New Brunswick Insulin Pump Program (IPP) supports New Brunswickers living with diabetes up to 25 years of age who are medically eligible for insulin pump therapy. The program seeks to assist individuals in obtaining fair and affordable access to a range of insulin pump devices and the basic operating supplies.  The client/family is responsible for a portion of the equipment and supplies based on income.  The calculation for the client/family contribution considers information such as household income, family size and the selected device. 

Eligible New Brunswickers , who wish to use insulin pump therapy, must meet the medical criteria and complete a IPP Approval Authority Form together with their physician specialist.  Only devices included in the Approved Vendor List are eligible for support.  The client/family must complete and mail the Financial Contribution Assessment section and the supporting documentation to the IPP Coordinator.  This will be used to determine the client/family’s financial contribution.

Once accepted, the client will receive their insulin pump device and supplies directly from the device vendor. Clients/families will pay their financial contribution for the pump device and supplies directly to the vendor.  Remaining costs are then billed to the province by the Vendor.
