where people touched by diabetes help each other.

Hey so I know most folks here are young but still I thought I'd ask. How does healthcare work in your country? To begin I can say that in mine insulin, test strips, needles, lancets are state funded.

So I pay as little as $12 to get all of that. However insulin pumps & CGM's are NOT & most health insurers won't cover it & at the most they'd cover 50% of them.😢😱

In my country (Norway) everything is pretty much free. If you pay 200 dollars a year on medical related things (regardless of your medical needs) you get a free card online connected to your name and everything is free after that. I don't even have to pay for a doctors appointment that doesn't have anything to do with my diabetes after I get a freecard.

I got a new pump not to long ago cause my last one Died and all I had to do was send in an application saying I would take good care of it. And 1 week later I picked it up from the hospital👌🏽

In my country (Malaysia), everything you have to pay for (except for those who receive treatment in general hospital then the medicine are funded by government and the fees are cheap).
