Cost of consumables in your country

Recommended Posts


Hi Everyone. Interested in how much consumables cost in your country. Are they subsidised? In New Zealand I pay $180 NZD ($130 USD) for a box of 10 canulas. What about you? How does this affect your ability to afford to pump?

I have Medicare (Advantage) coverage and a three month supply of reservoirs and infusion sets cost me $40 each. Medicare does not cover Medtronic sensors; however, Medtronic recently reduced the uninsured cost of Guardian 3 sensors to $60 for a box of five (a sensor is recommended to last 7 days but I renew my sensors for an additional 7 days.)
