Diabetes sufferers are reliant on regular doses of insulin to control their condition. Pumps vary in cost and your insurance should pay, but if you need to pay the typical £3,900 plus monthly fees for the medicine, be sure you are making the best choice.

Ongoing Costs

Before committing to an insulin pump, check out the ongoing costs of the insulin you will require. Some pumps are cheaper than others to buy or even free under certain conditions, but the insulin is more expensive and you have to commit to the provider's supply. Work out the long-term cost.

Recommendation

Regardless of cost, the pump should be chosen because it is the best one for your condition. Your doctor should recommend the best pump for you. Ask him for help in sourcing the cheapest deal. Internet deals may be cheaper than local sources and your doctor may have experience in finding better deals with medical suppliers.

Join Groups and Forums

Most insulin pumps carry a similar warranty period so if your doctor recommends several brands you will need to source the cheapest one. Join diabetes groups and discussion forums to see who has obtained the best deals. Don't be afraid to ask for discounts, help and advice.
