Everyone wants the best diabetes care possible for themselves and their
loved ones. Unfortunately, financial constraints can often get in the way.
Insulin Pumpers Foundation Pump Assistance
Program was created to help overcome financial obstacles that may be a barrier
to getting the best diabetes care.
Intensive diabetes management has been proven to significantly improve the
quality of life and reduce long-term complications for people with
Type 1 diabetes.1 Insulin
pump therapy can provide intensive insulin therapy that fits the varied
lifestyle needs of adults as well as children and teens. In addition,
insulin pump therapy has been shown to reduce the risk of hypoglycemia
compared to intensive insulin therapy using multiple daily injections.2 That's why we are committed to helping
families who cannot afford the cost of an insulin pump. Along the way, we
hope to communicate the benefits of insulin pump therapy for everyone.
Insulin Pumpers Foundation is pleased to offer a
program that helps bring insulin pump technology to those in our society who do
not have the financial resources to purchase an insulin pump on their own.
Because our organization is small and has modest resources, this program is
limited in scope and applicants must meet our selection committee's medical
and financial criteria to be considered as program candidates. Nonetheless,
we hope that in time the program will to grow to
accomodate more people.
