BC Government Expanding Insulin Pump Coverage as of July 3, 2018
Do you or someone you know live with diabetes? Almost half a million British Columbians do.
The provincial government has announced that it has enhanced coverage for insulin pumps. As of July 3, 2018, insulin pumps are covered under BC Pharmacare for residents of any age. Prior to this announcement, insulin pumps were covered for BC residents under the age of 25 only. Insulin pumps can cost upwards of $6,000 to $7,000 (requiring replacement roughly every five years).
Our BCCA Employee Benefits plan includes coverage for insulin pumps. This decision to remove the age limit for coverage of insulin pumps under BC Pharmacare will help to share some of the cost so that the Extended Health plan remains affordable in the years to come.
